Good morn from an excited hopeful, Adam

I live in the chicagoland area, and will be moving in the general time of October to the U.S.V.I. As a child I was there for a few years and was babysat on a boat, rode a dingy every day to get to mainland, and grew up knowing nothing but water. I can happily say I have followed my heart and it brought me to move back. Ive decided that being a liveaboard would be perfect and am going to do everything in my power to be well equipped with knowledge before I leave. Wish me luck and good sailing to all!!

Liveaboard bound and will do anything to learn something new!!
Pm me Chicago-land if you want free help in return for your knowledge. I want to learn.

Wow! Good luck Adam. There will be many toying with the deadly sin of envy when they read this. I'll start it off.

Sounds like an adventure in the making.

Toying with? No, I'm not toying with it. I'm positively AWASH in envy.

Good on ya though, Adam! May your adventures in the V.I. be boundless.
