Hi, my name is Larry and it has been 2-1/2 months since my last sail. I hate winter!
I registered here back in April and just lurked around here off and on.
Since then I bought my first boat in May, a '94 Macgregor 26C. I rent a Slip on Oologah Lake in NE Oklahoma. The wife and I had a tremendous amount of fun with it last year but she has decided "We need a bigger boat". So I'm currently shopping for a more substantial boat.

A little about me, Ex-Navy, submarine service. I work in electronics/communications/computers world but I'm something of a jack of all trades.

Welcome back to SailNet, Larry!

You know the drill: lurk, ask questions, contribute to the conversations, send the mods gifts.

Winter can go away soon and I will not miss it! Hard water on Lake Superior isn't fun! And the cabin on the Ice boat is drafty!...Welcome back!....Dale

Yeah that hard water stuff is a real downer. Even here in Oklahoma we are afflicted with it this year. According to the marina manager there is 8"-9" of ice in our marina and the lake is frozen over, Ain't nobody sailing this weekend here.
This down time can be rough on a sailor though. With no sailing to be done the mind wanders and gets a fellow into trouble. If things play out right I'll be trying to negotiate buying a "new" old boat tomorrow.

Welcome, how did things go when you looked at the new boat. Remember, pictures, pictures, pictures.

As of about 1100 CST I now own 2 boats. My "old" '94 Macgregor 26S and my "new" Cal 2-27. I'd post pics but I don't have the post count for the site to allow it yet.

You need four more boats to pass the top boat owner in my sail club.
