Morning everyone,

I was wandering the internet, and stumbled on your wiki. The little area of the world that I sail for fun is nearly completely blank, so I thought I'd join and shed some light on it. I've never edited a wiki so this maybe a slow process, bare with me.

A bit of background. I've been a sailor my whole life, and a maritime professional of some sort for the last 15 years. I've sailed extensively on the W. coast of North American between Puerto Vallarta, and the north end of Vancouver Island, and less extensivly else where (Caribean, coastal New England). I've worked in boat yards as a tech, in boat shops as a carpenter & hardware rigger, and on big traditional vessels as all manner of things (excepting cook). These days I try not to go to sea, and run run a boat repair business out of Bellingham, Washington. My wife and I own a Cornish Pilot (by Cornish Crabbers), and are nearing the end of out perpetual refit... progress on my own boat is WAY slower when I'm working on other peoples boats everyday.

A hearty welcome aboard - good to have you here.

I'm happy to hear that you will do a bit of writing/editing on the Wiki - especially areas that are still "lean". The more you work with the Wiki, the easier it gets. To assist, read the Wiki "Help" file.

Make yourself at home - the drinks are on "JeanneP" this week.

Welcome, McKee,

We're happy to have you here! We're very interested in your voyaging experiences and can't wait to hear more about your sailing experiences as well. Thanks for helping on the wiki! I've done a little there myself but tend to get overwhelmed (for some strange reason...) with other things and don't get back to it.

Welcome, welcome, welcome
