Hello from a long time lurker.

My name is Adam. I am a married father of four (three boys and a girl). I taught myself to somewhat sail about two years ago on a Starfish (Sunfish clone) and have been looking for something bigger and drier ever since. I've been in the process of building a Puddle Duck Racer (definitely not bigger, possibly drier) for about a year now (protagonist). I've been lurking around the Sailnet forums for about 2.5 years and thought is was about time to say hello. I've really enjoyed the postings I've seen during my lurking and have learned a lot. Now I feel it's time to come out of the shadows to introduce myself and to thank the many forum members who have informed an entertained me for so long.

Re: Hello from a long time lurker.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I am currently looking for a trailer-sailer in the 22-25' range. I live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area (Cleburne, TX to be more precise), so most of my sailing has been on an area lake. I hope to move up to something large enough to fit my family of six for a day on the lake with the occasional trip down to the coast being possible as well. My ultimate dream would be to buy a liveaboard cruiser after retirement and after adjusting to the lifestyle start cruising anywhere and everywhere. I've gotten as far as getting the wife to change her mind from a stern no way to a weak maybe on the subject. I figure within the next decade I can convince her to at least give a year as a trial run.

Re: Hello from a long time lurker.

Well then take your time as rushing a lady will get you nowhere. You might watch Ebay or Craigs list and find what you're looking for without upsetting the checkbook. Lots of luck....Dale
