new guy

Hi Everyone,

my name is Rich.

I am a 23 year old Paramedic from Western Mass. I found your site recently and I figured I would register since I've already been spending alot of time reading all of the interesting articles here. I myself have virtually no experience at sailing. I have been out on the ocean maybe half a dozen times on a friend's family's boat, its about a 20' sailboat with a small engine and a removable centerboard that we took out onto the bay near Newport a few times.

I love going out and I definetely can't wait to start taking some hands on courses and starting learn to sail when I get onto a fire department and into a more stable income.

Untill then I'll just be hanging around here soaking up all the information I can and just dreaming.

Thanks for all the information you guys add to this site

We all start somewhere...Welcome Aboard

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
