My name is Ed and I have just retired and am preparing to move aboard my sailboat.  I am looking forward to taking photos of my travels up and down our beautiful coast.  I have a Coolpix P900 and am looking forward to learning how best to use it from reading articles in this forum.  I have attached a photo of Ocean Angel, taken by my brother (also a member of this forum under the nickname "Islander").  Have a great day!

Welcome! What a great retirement!

Thanks, Dennis.

Hello Mark;
I purchased Ocean Angel, a Roberts 36 from the original owner/builder two years ago. She is made out of steel. She was launched in 1986 and has been to Mexico, across the South Pacific, up to Hawaii, and Alaska before I purchased her. I have done some upgrades, mostly electronics, new windlass, and am currently replacing all the Sunbrella canvas. I have a Facebok page dedicated to her.
