new here

hi! i'm new to the forum so i thought i'd introduce myself and my intentions and give a little back ground.

i am 18, and attending college at ODU in norfolk, virginia, and i am from a county on the Rappahannock river. i learned to sail in annapolis, and for the last 6 or 7 years i've been racing locally and out of annapolis as much as i can. i've done flying scotts (winner of the spring series as RRYC! WOOT!), i learned in 420s naturally, and i've done some PHRF.

my intention here is to possibly get some help in making my decision to live on a boat for the rest of college, and if persuaded to make a positive decision, get some advise to make my transition into the life aboard a little easier. in return i hope to offer comic relief, and possibly some technical advise learned in my years of working at a boat yard and helping my dad on his side projects at home. and i'll be able to give advise on almost any engine problems, as my real passion lies in mechanisms. thanks for the welcome ahead of time, and sorry for the lengthy first post.

Hi Kasbe and welcome. I sailed out of Deltaville for many years. You are in a good spot at ODU to think about living aboard. "Would you like to go for a sail ?"sure beats, "would you like to come up to my dorm room?" so these decisions can't be measured in dollars and cents alone!!

i forgot to mention a bit that many of you may associate with. if you've ever heard of the line of trollers that zimmerman marine makes, the Z36 and 46, those are made at the yard that my dad works at all the time, and i've worked there for some summers. so i've been on all of them. just an interesting fact to brag about if it even holds any weight lol. their construction has been followed in a few big boating magazines, so most of you have probably seen them
