YANG - yet another new guy
Getting legitimate with my first post. Looking to buy a 36-40 boat for cruising sometime in the next year. Will probably bring it up the Tombigbee and put it in Pickwick for a year or so while we get more familiar with the boat. Long term plans include basing it in Pensacola and moving along the Eastern seaboard.
Experience has only been on other people boats. Feel I need my own boat to really learn. My wife and I have done a few trips with a couple different couples that were much more experienced, including the following:
Antigua - Nevis - St Kitts - St Eustatius - St Barts - St Martin trip
British Virgin Islands
Guadeloupe - Isle de Saintes - Dominica (Endeavour 40)
Intercostal from Ft. Lauderdale to Jacksonville (IP 35)
Nantucket - Marthas - Block Island - Atlantic City - Cape May - Baltimore (IP 35)
Local experience as crew racing on S2, Bene 34, J30.
In spite of some great trips, still really green and have a ton to learn. Currently looking at various sites to try to determine what type of boat to purchase, and have been going through old posts to educate myself.
Just wanted to say 'howdy' with my first post.
