Just joined and am enjoying it so far!
Background on me is that I own a Catalina 25 swing keel which I'd used in Kerr Lake near the Va./N.Carolina border a few years after purchasing her there.
I have since found a trailer for her and she now sits well inland North West of Richmond Virginia awaiting transport to the Deltaville, Va. area as soon as I come up with a tow vehicle! Until then I've been making ungodly plans to take her around the world if only in mind as sailors sometimes do when their boats are on the hard.
My sailing adventures began with a friend quite a long time ago in the 80's on Biscayne Bay near Miami in small 15-16' day sailors such as a Bandit 16' and a Great Pelican, both of whom belonged to my friend, and various other canoes and what-not.
Later, in the 90's through and into the 20teens, I sailed with my Brother-in-law on his various similar small day sailors until he graduated to a 30' McCurdy&Rhodes Seafarer.
I finally got my own boat but it had to be trailerable yet able to do coastal cruises.
I found a great deal on one which had only been used minimally on a fresh water lake and was as though off the factory floor inside and out with fresh sails purchased by the previous owner and only 6mos old.
That's pretty much it for me on the sailing front but hope to find camaraderie, info and constant inspiration to simply sail my boat from others here.
