Hello All

My name is Pete and I am writing from beautiful Vancouver, BC. I just stumbled across this site and thought I'd check it out.

I don't have a boat as of yet. I have grown up on the water but have never learned to sail. I plan on taking courses this summer when i finish school.

If I could buy a boat tomorrow I would probably pick up the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 45DS, which, in my opinion, has to be one of the sexiest pieces of floating art I have seen.

Anyways, enough blabbering, Just wanted to say hi.

Cheers

Pete

Hi. *And welcome to CL. *So here you are, you don't own a boat yet and you are still looking at "boat porn". *It can be an incurable compulsion, leading you to jump into your dinghy and approach that gorgeous boat anchored near you, and introduce yourself as sweetly as possible in order to charm those lucky stiffs into inviting you aboard so you can hyperventilate over their home.

Don't be afraid to do it. *I've never been shunned by anyone whose boat I admired.

I like the enthusiasm.

Welcome aboard Pete - hope you can lay hands on a boat of your dreams sooner than you think.

Make yourself at home.

Welcome aboard Pete, I would love to offer you a frosty or 2 but my cupboard is bare, however you are welcome to a shot or 2 of Witblitz. There is tons of information here and many helpful souls, dont be shy to ask.
