T.I.A. (thread initiation anxiety)

Never started a thread before. New to forum world. Have no idea what the difference is between a "Reply to Post" and a "Quick Reply." (Do I have to type faster?) The exponential (sp?) nature of forum theory is mind boggling. Obviously, thread management is crucial. Just what I need at my age....another steep learning curve!

Long story short: (1) sailed a baby catboat from ages 8 to 17, (2) college, (3) marriage, (4) amazing daughter, (5) broke neck: C6/C7, (6) paralyzed from chest down w/no grip, (7) freelanced and wrote 3 mystery novels, (8)divorce, (9) 6 years playing blues harp with various bands in KC and NY, (10) 4 amazing grandchildren...1 more on the way, (11) rediscovered best friend/high school sweetheart/soulmate after 30 yrs., (12) we moved to the FL Keys 5 yrs. ago, (13) got run down in a US1 crosswalk by a recent stroke victim "driving" a white Toyota Corolla....titanium wheelchair saved my life, (14) pelvis permanently shattered in hundreds of places, (15) decided to return to my "other" first love, (16) ordered a Seaward 26RK, (17) crazy old broken man determined to sail it single handed, (18) because of all the accessibility add-ons, the factory crew nicknames it the "Bat Boat," (19) soulmate loves photography, and the idea of exploring the Keys together....IF she can get over the sea-sickness/accident anxiety issues, (20) theorectical delivery date: late August

That's me. Now I have to go study up on Q.F.T. (quantum forum theory)

WELCOME.

Maybe the boat's name should be TENACITY, or something fitting. You have all my respect, and BEST WISHES........i2f

Thanks....

Thanks for the well-wishes! Not sure whether I've bitten off more than I can chew, but I'm reading everything I can find. Jibs are all new for me, and I chose a Genoa, so (as I understand what I've read?) my first 2 or 3 reefs can be with the electric furler. Knew a boom/jib would be easier, but read that first reefs would then need to be on mainsail. Did I get that right?
