Hi all

I'm a lifelong powerboater. I've owned a variety of boats since I was a teen, boating mostly on the Virginia tributaries of the chesapeake bay.

Due to a rise in fuel prices and other factors my boating has been severely curtailed. However my desire to be on the water has remained the same.

I've recently been looking into sailing as slightly less expensive way to spend time on the water. I've been doing a lot of research here and on the forums.

My wife and I have a lesson scheduled soon to see if it's something we're both interested in as I've been on sailing vessels a grand total of three times, all when I was a kid. If all goes well I may be looking at my first (non power) boat next year.
