evening all
 
British expat, lived and worked around the world, finally settled in the good old US of A. Been a longggggg time wanna be boater, finally have the means and am working on convincing the wife that THIS.....THIS will be the best waste of time and money yet :)
Lots and lots of questions, first thing I have to do is get the family wet and out on the water!
Been lurking here for a few months, love the atmosphere in here and look forward to asking a millions already asked questions :)

thanks guys, booking sailing lessons for the daughter and I this spring.
she's 7, her brother is 3!!! I'm thinking about a dingy big enough for me the wife and the kids at first, my eye is really on a beneteau 34, but that's a year away at best.
Got to get the wife "onboard" first,lol
my real issue is living in the frozen norrth east, I just don't see the fun in sailing round NY, jeebus, I try to avoid driving round it :)

Hey! Some of us have brains, too.

CaptainMayhem, welcome aboard! My boys are 7 and 4 (soon to be 5). I see that you're a little northwest of me. Where will you be doing your local sailing? We're going to be on Peace Valley using an old Albacore that I picked up on Craigslist for cheap. Our "big boat" will be out on Barnegat Bay this summer, if I can get her there.

Nockamixon, then somewhere down around MD for the cruising I hope.
Looking hard for a boat right now, 32-34' really like the look of the beneteau's inside and out.
But will end up with what ever fits the wallet I'm sure.
last time I sailed was my honeymoon, took the wife out on a hobby cat,lol
I swear the wrinkles have yet to clear from her face, we did actually submarine the thing, caught a wave and it just went down right up to the tiller. Bobbed back up straight away but that was the end of that fun,lol
Now I get to do it with a seven year old who has no concept of dancing with the wind. can't wait :)
