Another new skipper in the making

Hello to all and thanks for all the information so far! My wife and I are getting closer to retirement and are ready to slow down and enjoy a little more solitude. After 35 years of RV's and trailer boats we are beginning the research and planning for life in the Puget Sound and north. Stay tuned - I'll be around asking a lot of questions hundreds have probably asked before me

Yes it is! I work on public safety communications systems and enjoy a little HF time as well. I have my commercial license as well and will probably add my radar endorsement so I can maintain my equipment - and perhaps my dockmates as well
