Hi! Nice place you have here. Lots of activity and lots of friendly and helpful people.

About me:
My first exposure to sailing was way back in 1970. I was 19. I was invited on a 1933 Alden 44 for a day sail on Lake Michigan. I was hooked!

When I was 26, my dad bought a 1975 Columbia 45. We sailed to Mackinac Island and back every year for the 8 years he had it in Chicago, cruising, not in the race. On one trip I took the boat to the Benjamin Islands. What a beautiful place!

My dad retired and took the boat down to Florida. We sailed down to the upper Keys, got to sail Biscayne Bay and took it over to the Bahamas a few times.

After he passed in '96, my boss bought a Hunter 35. He relied on me to teach him how to sail. He wasn't a very good student. We mostly sailed day outings on Lake Michigan and participated in weekly beer can races. We did one race to Michigan City, IN and back.

Now I'm retired and looking to sell the house and finally realize a 40 year dream, owning my own boat. I came here to tap the vast knowledge of the members in helping achieve that dream, especially in choosing the right boat.

Welcome aboard. Please do keep us all in the loop what you purchase and why. A boat purchase is infinitely more involved than say a house, but also infinitely more rewarding. We all wish you luck, and we're here to help where we can.

Howdy. If I might make a suggestion, before you think about what boat, decide what you're actually going to do with whatever boat you choose. Once you know what you'll do, then you can determine the best boat available (that strikes your fancy, of course), to do it.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
