Hello from a new member

New member here. I've been sailing for 7 years in Lake Michigan out of Chicago. Just became owner of a 1975 Chrysler C-22 so I am trolling for information and came across this site. Hope to contribute when I can. Happy sailing.

Peter

"One ship drives east and another drives west,
With the selfsame winds that blow.
'Tis the set of the sails, and not the gales
Which tells us the way to go.

"Like the winds of the sea are the ways of fate,
As we voyage along through life:
'Tis the set of the soul which decides its goal,
And not the calm or the strife."
-- Ella Wheeler Wilcox (Poet, 1850-1919)

Welcome aboard, Peter

Courtney's my Dancing Angel

Where am I, and where's my paddle?
It's not impossible, it just costs more.
Give me ambiguity, or give me something else.

Welcome Peter...I had that poem in my office for 22 years until we could finally set sail. Great line...'Tis the set of the sails, and not the gales
Which tells us the way to go.
