Hi I'm Maury and I have a sailing problem.

It's been 2 weeks since my last sail. : (

I just joined SailNet a couple of days ago. I've been on the fight club thread. Great bunch.

I've been sailing 3 seasons now on a J35 which I race on. I don't own that boat I'm just crew. I've been a power boater all my life but always wanted to sail. I want to retire and sail from Michigan into the Atlantic and down to the islands for a few years. So I got myself on a race boat to learn how to sail.

I decided I need to do some small boat sailing to get the base experience that every good captain I know has had. So I decided that I shall sail Hobies. Hobies epitomize my extreme nature. This epiphany came to me a month ago. I now own 3 Hobies. 2 Hobie 16's and, as of yesterday, an H18. I think I have a problem. I can't stop buying them. They are giving them away this time of year. lol.

The 2 H16's are project boats with some real fiberglass projects that my son and I are undertaking this winter. I am in my garage right now taking a break with my Sailor Jerry's rum and Vernors while I type to you all.

So that's me. Warm regards to all.

Mauryd

...welcome aboard Maury! As you are now finding out, sailing and SN can be great therapy for OCD... as long as you keep the boat purchases to a minimum. It took me 25 years to realize all that was missing was a boat. As tough as it is waiting, I'm actually blessed with waiting until next year to begin the purchasing aspect. I hope I can keep it to just one boat at a time.

Good luck nuufoftexas. That's just my Hobie inventory.

I also have a Pontoon boat at our cottage, a 13' Whaler fishing boat at the cottage, a paddle boat at the cottage, and a canoe at home.

OCD is a terrible thing to waste.

Maury

You got that right Denby. Our race season just ended and I have been busy as &^%! ever since. Doesn't look good for me til next spring.

I did get in a decent amount this summer though. I was doing a couple of times a week and of course the Mac race.

Thanks to all of you for the welcome.

Maury

Maury! Slap some quick glass work on your best set of h16 hulls and take the best rigging from each. You'll also need your best trailer, as it's a long haul from michigan to mississippi. We have a stellar autumn season, a wetsuit will be plenty for all year. We have a race this Saturday, I'm going on a Nacra20. There are plenty more this season also, in awesome weather.
If you actually do make it down, prepare to be the honorary guest, as you'll deserve it after the 50 hour drive..

Thanks Tod!

My family is from Tennesse on my Dad's side and Alabama on my Mom's so I am used to driving down south to see family. The drive doesn't bother me as I've done it all my lfe.

Problem is I have used all my vacation time this summer.

Really glad for the invite though. You really have your crap together for a High Schooler.

My son is a Senior in High School and my daughter is a Sophomore in college.

Saw your posts in FC. Good job!

Maury
