Hello from Rochester, my stepson is awaiting an acceptance letter from RIT, we're keeping our fingers crossed! I can't imagine how bad I'll be once I have a s/v. I know it will have to be at least a 24' or more with galley, head and a berth because I'll probably be banned from the house due to incessant sailing talk.

Thanks hellosailor, sounds like a good idea. I've been golfing for years (my scores wouldn't show it). I told my wife once I start sailing I'll probably never see a golf course again, I want to be on the water!

I have been to the Anapolis Boat Show & Ft Lauderdale/Miami bot show, both worth going to. I would love to get to the strictly Sail in ChiTown at some point as well.

Pardon my spelling, my spell check seems to be on the fritz.

I constantly constantly constantly pay attention to wind and weather...thats good practice whether boating or not.

Tacking the car...different strokes for different folks I guess.

We all get it differently. Wait till you get a boat. It's all over then. Total loss of sanity.
A fellow Tiger, when did you graduate?

Re: "Sure I'll walk the dog, honey!"

Ha! I thought I was the only one that had that problem while driving. I remember last May when I took my sailing classes, after being on the water for about eight hours, I was driving home on the mass pike. As I would change lanes I kept waiting for the boom to set on the other side of the boat. It never did

Re: "Sure I'll walk the dog, honey!"

Ya'll need to put a Windex on your car antenna.
I had one for years until a Force 9 bit of road took it off.

I stare at the water outside my front door and practice docking and undocking with just the sails, and the boats not even at the pier
