Hi Craig,

Welcome to SeaKnots. This is a great website for sailors but unfortunately participation is not what it once was but we can always change this part by inviting our friends. Take care and hope you meet some kewl people here.

Wanted to say hello and make new friends with hopes to sail the world :)

I'm new to the site and just finding myself around. Looking forward meeting others and finding my way back to sea.

Wow nobody has been here for awhile and a long while. I wanted to say hello and love to meet people. I love sailing and I am a sailor with a disability but no less capable smiles. I hope to see more activity here and fair winds and following seas

Knocking the cobwebs off of this page.  January is almost over and I'm dreaming of the upcoming sailing season.  My boat is in Curtice, Ohio (east of Toledo on Lake Erie) and I'm looking forward to spending a lot of time on the water.  Hope to see some of you out there!

Landlocked in eastern WA but working my way west as soon as I am able.  In the mean time I go out with the local yacht club when I don't have a photo shoot taking up my weekends.

"Yep my boat is 8 years old, fresh water use only until last Aug, decommissioned for three years and the grease inside was more like a sticky paraffin wax if there is such a thing. Totally unacceptable. "
