Ok, no reason to use the future tense. You are hereby part of the group, with all the rights, privileges and anchor arguments therein.

Just get to 10 posts so you can post pictures, I think that's the last hurdle.

Regards,
Brad

Re: Hi new girl who loves working & playing on boats!

Welcome Robbyn,
On your way South, be sure to allocate enough time to explore the Chesapeake! There are too many gunkholes and nice towns to visit around the bay to list here but well worth the time

Cheers,
Tom

Welcome aboard. Come south. It's wonderful and warm here.

And, yes, the Bahamas are more beautiful and more fun to sail in than they even appear in pictures and articles.

I sailed there my first time in 1987 when I was 29 and I still remember thinking, "I can't believe I waited until I was 29 to visit a place so cool, and beautiful, and close." (I live on the Mississippi gulf coast).

Hi Tom

Thank you for the welcome!

I actually chartered out of Rock Hall Md years ago and enjoyed
the Cheasapeek and Baltimore very much - the crab nets and jelly fish I remember
were every where but it was beautiful.

I think you hit the two words that are becoing more important
lately to me, cool to visit but warm... it has been very cold around
here.

Re: Hi new girl who loves working & playing on boats!

I have a friend who has an Endeavor 32' on the Chesapeake that I've enjoyed sailing on several times.
Great boat for cruising.
I'm looking forward to seeing how/if you used your stained glass talents when refurbishing "Fragile".
You'll pass me when you cruise down the Hudson River on your way south. My boat is near the Tappan Zee bridge. Transient moorings are still only $25 per night at the Nyack Boat Club.

Welcome to sailnut.
Caleb helped me out early on with his endless supply of tools and supplies. We've sailed together many times. He's a good person to know.

Regards,
Brad

Welcome to sailnut.
I have stained glass lamps on board of course but when I relayed my floor I used beach glass and stone to do my bildge covers as some of my teak tiles were past saving.... I plan on carrying the idea through on the countertop this spring when I redo them!

That is a very good price for an overnight dock when a yacht club isn't around! We had friends just take a Catalina 36 from Buffalo to Key largo Sept 27 - December 15 they had a blast!
