Yeah, you're right. Although you gotta get up to speed to do it, but getting the deck cutting underwater was more of just a fun challenge -- and to see how close I could come to not tipping over!

Didn't mind a flip, never enjoyed when it turned turtle on me.

Forgive me, I'm new on this board and it seems my signature was a little much. I really didn't mean to come off commercial. I am working with and I wanted to make it clear in my signature. Maybe it was too clear and that was the problem.

Well, I cleaned it up. I hope this better and still has the disclosure for whom I'm with - it's my email address. Bottom line is I really want to join this community. One of the things I think I can offer well are fun and cool links that I find other people create and I share them -- not my content, theirs.

I tried to get some help/clarification from a few through messaging but I have to have 5 posts before I can.

Here's to trying to start off on a better foot!

...and if the signature is still not appropriate, please let me know. I really do want to play nice.

Hello everyone. I just joined the SailNet community and look forward to getting to know some of you and learn from you too.

I grew up sailing on occasion. My dad taught me to sail on a Sunfish -- loved that little boat. I'd flip it just for fun on a hot day. Of course it was more fun to get it so tight that the lean would have the water on top of the deck as I sliced through the lake.

Dad also has/had an old Catalina 22. I say "has/had" because it's still in the slip but I don't think it's been out in years. Maybe I should share some of these stories on here?

Oh, one of the things I'm enjoying doing right now is finding fun and cool stuff online and sharing them. All of that fun/cool stuff is being aggregated at It's also got links to my twitter, youtube, digg, etc profiles.

Anyway, looking forward to interacting with you.
