Welcome aboard. Oh Joy's out for quite a while but I'm sure others will extend invites. Do yourself a favor and get a good set of foulies.

Plenty of Puget Sound sailors on this board... I'm sure you'll hear from them.

Welcome!

As for the foulies, I happened across a helly hansen sale last year and picked up a drysuit and kevlar bib pants on the cheap. Stoked to use 'em.

Also, welcome to Sailnet.

Jody's boat is more interesting than mine, but I'll see if I can get you out sailing when work slows down for me.

How do you feel about cold and rain?

Seriously.
