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.
