jslade8581 is on a distinguished road

I figured that I'd introduce myself, since I started a thread on the Gear & Maintenance side without any formal greetings. It was a little rude of me!

I've been around the sea for most of my adult life. I started by sailing while in college around seven years ago (little Lasers), but most of my time at sea has been as an officer on Navy ships. I was recently stationed in the Charleston, SC area, where I rediscovered my love of sailing.

After sailing with a friend of mine as crew, and taking a few lessons, my wife and I took the plunge by selling our powerboat. We're now the proud owners of the new-to-us Zephyr (1981 O H Rodgers 33) which my wife refers to as the "other woman".

Anyway, I love the site - there's a lot of insight here, and I'm looking forward to learning much more from all of you.

Hey slade, welcome to SN dude.

Don't worry about being rude. We're sailors for crying out loud!
