Hi, all! :)
 
Hey, everyone! My name is Quentin... Friends call me Q. I'm entirely new to sailing, though I've spent a lot of time on boats. I'm a tattoo artist and been so for 24 years. Before that, i worked on tugs in the Mississippi river and on offshore supply boats as well as fishing boats in the Gulf of Mexico. I'm from Louisiana, but currently living in Norway. I've been wanting a sailboat for several years now and think it's about time to make that investment. :) I joined the forum here, basically to read about the trials and errors that other people face with having this lifestyle, as well as to ask for advice from veterans and newcomers alike, and maybe to learn from the FAQ's that are faced here... And look forward to getting to know new people along the way... :)

Thanks! Q

Haha... In ten years, I've only tried that stuff twice... once to see if I liked it, and a second to be sure I didn't... :)

I like the style and room of it, but still have to be sure it will work for me in terms of sailing and handling... also the price is attractive for the size... :)

You're two ahead of me. My current wife is norwegian on her mor's side, and we both understand that lutefisk in the house will change "current" to "former"- that shidt ain't right.
