Son of a son of a ...

Sailor. Hi, the sailing bug is starting to bite. I currently live in TN but plan to move to Ft Lauderdale this fall/winter. On the agenda, buying a sail boat and living aboard learning to sail. Help, criticism, advice all welcome. My grandfather used to take us sailing in an Endeavour 37 sloop and I really never forgot it.

Look forward to getting to know everyone.

Welcome to SailNet! I'm a fellow Tennessean, Chattanooga to be exact. What part of TN do you live in?

I will ask plenty of questions.

As for moving in the fall.... I definitely need time to adjust to the heat.

Went to school in Knoxville. If you ever come down our way, let me know.

Welcome. From Mississippi.
