Welcome aboard.
Mr. Jones suffers from an abundance of hubris and temerity, being an aspiring writer and all! I am sure that 'hubris' is a fairly quotidian word for him and his banter is meant to amuse rather than being a lathering down.

There are plenty of us who learned to sail on boats like your Phantom. I learned to sail a Sunfish early on. Your small boat experience will serve you well with bigger boats.

Welcome to Sailnut!

Thanks for the elucidation! In word play, it always helps to know the players.

I second Angelfish's welcome! Always nice to have more girls on board! Helps us keep those pesky boys in line...yeah right!
I've found SN to be a great source of info! Ask lots of questions, it helps us all!

Re: New member blown away!

Welcome to the message board!

I love my Phantom, and still sail it 2 weeks every year on Lake Wallenpaupack. Sunfishes are great too, but Phantom made some very significant improvements to make the cockpit more comfortable and the rigging more durable. Boats like Phantom and Sunfish give you immediate feedback when you make a mistake, and therefore are the best way to learn. You'll find a bigger boat to be an easy transition.
