Prolly time for me to introduce myself...

After 1,000 posts and one near banning, it is probably time that I take the opportunity to introduce myself.

I like sailing. In fact, I may have a sailing problem. It has been an obsession of mine since my youth, when my father unwittingly introduced his family to the new MacGregor Venture 24 he foolishly bought during a midlife crises. He pulled his eldest son (me) out of his regularly-scheduled third grade classes in order to take him sailing on the Potomac River out of Fort Washington marina. Eager to miss school, I instantly fell in love with sailing and sailboats and have been smitten every since. I even love the smell of fiberglass resin (in the morning). Only in moderation.

For the past 42 years, intermittently, I have sailed, I have raced, I have cruised, I have repaired, and now I have wasted countless hours on a sailing forum.

Don't ignore me or act all elitist and shitzel. I need to be warmly welcomed and reassured that you are all salt of the earth, just like me, or I might quit by firing off one-last-tell-everyone-off and/or crybaby criticism of this forum.

I'm just like you James. One thing I don't understand though is if you are a blood sucking lawyer how come you are not sailing a Oyster?

He is like a LOT of us, still working his way up to that vaulted 1% layer...hahahaha!! And we won't hold the lawyer thing against you, for sure.

Welcome aboard, old timer.

And the family too, it is your job to snag your third grader (you got a year or two to prepare) out for a grand time on the boat.

Fair winds, James and crew.

Jim, despite your wacko political views (which I now just ignore) i hope you stick around! You have a wealth of sailing knowledge and own my second favorite boat (my former boat for the rest of you)!

Maybe it should be a requirement to reach 1000 posts before you introduce yourself, we wouldn't have to waste our valuable time on the maybes, only the keepers.
Welcome James.
