Greetings from Midnight sailor

I have been a sailnet member for several years and overthis time have enjoyed reading the post and have certainly learned alot from them. I am a wee bit computer shy and contributing my own posts has always been intimidating but I am finaaly getting over it. I sail a 1971 Contest 29 out of Greenport NY. As of this time ARTEMIS has been on the hard for the past couple of years while I slowly work on a totatl refit of the vessel from a stripped out hull. Since I work as a shipwright, I still have ample opportunity to go out sailing with customers but am looking forward to the day that I have my own vessel under my feet again. Regards Rick

Welcome out of the closet MNS...
Im not often accused of being shy..mostly accused of being a rear end..

You should really just jump in and enjoy the fun...I have only been around since Jan 08 but several of these clowns have endeared them selves already and I know we will be good friends if we ever meet up..I have actually benefited in a tangibal way also..by being steered to my curent marina and slip arrangements and still havent meat the man whos boat is birthed 6' from mine... but we will and we'll probably empty a few suds togather once or twice I can imagine too.

There are some genuinely good and decent folks here and some genuine characters too..so loose that fear and jump into the fry.

Welcome Aboard Mattie

Hey Rick...I sailed my first boat out of Larry's Lighthouse Marina some decades ago and it is tough to think of a nicer place to keep a boat than n the North Fork. Contests aren't well known here but they are great boats! Welcome to the light!!

Just came back from crewingh on a Raider 33 for the wednesday night fun races. Long Islands East End and the Peconic Bay are wonderful sailing areas, Larry's is all the way down at the west end of the Bay and it is a nice sail from there out to orient point and beyond. I sure hope I can be of some help to others..just one of the great things about sailing and boats in general..you can never stop learning and finding new things to learn about, and the sailing community in particular I find to be always ready and willing to help. Camararderie, I see You have a ayana 52etch. I spent last year doing a mojor electrical refit of one and this year a new teak deck. They are really nice comfortable and capable blue water cruisers and great liveaboards too..I envy you. yContest is much like a fancier Pearson Triton , very similar designs, but with a whole lot of nice varnished mahogany interior. If only it was a little bit bigger!!
