Thanks, drsutton, for resurrecting this thread -- I'd not read it before, but am amazed at the wittiness of the posters -- and welcome, too.

Fort Washington Marina...



Spent my first night on my new to me boat there....

Picked it up at the air force base marina just up the creek and took my maiden vovage down the Potomac without a paddle, (or gps, or vhs, or a good running motor)

Did have a chart though

Re: Prolly time for me to introduce myself...

Soon to be 79 years old, I was introduced to sailing at age 15 crewing on a Lightening. Five boats later and 100's of blunders and mistakes my current baby is a Helms 27. She is by far one of the nicest and sweetest sailboats I've ever owned. She is docked at Lake Norman North Carolina where most of my sailing takes place. Off shore crusing the SE coast has been replaced by quiet nights in a cove sharing dinner and a bottle of wine with my wife which only adds to the magic that has filled my life at the helm.

Exaggerating for sure. However, he was pretty well known for handing out spankings, in addition to his valuable replies.

I never did hear the story behind why he left in a huff.
