  7. Risky Business

    Introduce Yourself
    No, that's not the name of any boat I'd own...but then, I still can't fess up to owning any boats. That said, in the last few weeks I've been charged with restoring a couple: forget the aquasport (unless it becomes the first sail-powered model); the interesting vessel is the Prestige 36...

  11. Southern California sailor looking for rides...

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi all, Sailing was a fantasy during my work life. After selling the business, I went after learning the craft in a big way. While I've only been sailing since 2009, I've racked up a fair bit of training and time on the water. I'm ASA certified in 101, 103, 104, 105, and 106. I've taken the...
