Hello! I should have into'd myself here before posting in other sections. The T & T blog sent me here to pick up "50 feet of foul-deck line", so I figured I wouldn't be here long. There is a ton of info here, and folks are nice, so I think I'll hang around.
Not a boat owner yet, and the only boats I've piloted are a 27' pontoon, and a Ranger bass rig. Many years ago I was lured aboard the USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70), only to find out later that cooks don't get to drive the boat!
The wife and I will finally be empty-nesters in 5 years (Please, Lord!), and we are laying in plans to minimize our stuff, reduce our debt, and work our way towards living aboard, voyaging, or something in between.
Look forward to knowing y'all, and as my knowledge increases, hoping to be a helpful member of the forum.
