Boat nut in RI

Hi there,
Thought I'd introduce myself. I joined the board because I noticed that someone else had posted who had the same kind of sailboat I have, which is unusual as I have not seen another boat like mine although there are a few out there. I have a 1965 Cape Cod Marlin daysailer version, which I bought two years ago and did a ton of work on. Haven't gotten to the 10 post limit yet to post pics but once I can I have lots of pics to share. If anyone here reads Sailing magazine I wrote an article about the refit which appeared in the January 2008 issue.

My fleet also contains a wooden Kingfisher rowing shell (22' 8"), a fiberglass Valley Anas Acuta sea kayak, a Sunfish and a variety of other assorted small craft. I am a certified boat nut with a diploma to prove it, I attended the Landing School's yacht design program in 1999-2000. Currently I am not working in the marine field per se, I am a PhD student in biological oceanography. I spend a lot of time on the water for work (in powerboats) and also spent 12 days at sea on R/V Endeavor (184') a couple years ago which was lots of fun.

My primary boating locations are southern Narragansett Bay and also Newfound lake, NH, at least for a week each summer.
