Hello From Canada

Hello All,

I really like your site!
I've been lurking here for awhile now and thought I should finally post.
I've been looking for a sailboat for about a year now and have a "short" list of about 25 at any one time.
I don't even mind if it's a project boat if price is right.
Anyway thanks for providing such an informative site
Tom

Welcome fellow Canuck. In what part of our fair land are you located?

But they might know about km.

I always thought that Toronto was 60 km north of Hamilton.

LMAO! Good one! Hey Encomb. I was a lurker for at least 3 years. Most times I would google the net for info it would bring me to one of the forums on this site. Lots of good people and good info. Hope you enjoy it as much as I. I am from Blind River, Ontario. Topside of Lake Huron.

Thanks for the welcome All!
I should have said; I live 60 kms south of "the center of the universe" as most Torontonians believe

Another mostly lurker from Ontario here. We're one of the two Hobie Tigers on Burlington Bay (out of BSBC) but live in KW. Hoping to acquire a monohull this year but I'm not sure we can handle dropping to 1/3 of the speed...
