Hello from Maine

Hello to everyone, obviously I am new to this site but also new to sailing, I don't even own a boat yet. I love the look and size of the micro cruiser boats and am planing on buying one either the end of this summer or next, depending on if I can find one I like or not.

I would like to get more experience sailing but unfortunately do not have any friends with sail boats. So let me know if your looking for some help in the Maine area.

BB- welcome. There is a West Wight Potter 15' moored right off the public boat ramp at Portland's East End. Check it out; those are awesome little micro-cruisers and one was for sale earlier this summer in Sullivan.

There is no membership to view uncle henry's ads. I couldn't find the ad again. Either it is sold or they didn't renew the post.

I took some sailing and navigation classes with the wooden boat school in Brooklin Maine near blue Hill. Had a great time wonderfull people and instructors. They do boat building but also offer lots of other classes. I have been several times and plan to go back for more.
