Default New member introduction

Hello all.

This September, after 30+ years committed to sailing, I sold out and purchased my first power boat, a 2008 2900SE. She doesn’t have a name, but I am favoring “Hell Froze Over”. Couldn’t be happier with my choice and look forward to this next phase. I’m located in upstate New York (the real upstate) and plan on exploring state and northeast waterways.

No questions, yet, she is laid up for the winter hibernation, but I’m sure there’ll be many come spring.

Probably shouldn’t close with “Fair winds”.

Welcome aboard!

Winter doesn’t even start until Saturday so you have time to finalize the name if you are uncertain.

Cool

The name comes from me saying many times over the years that I would get a power boat when “hell freezes over”.

Powerboats tend to favor fair winds and following seas as well. Otherwise it's bashing into a big headsea. At 23 knots, that loosen your fillings

Most sail boaters I know go out in worse conditions then power boaters, especially if it racing night then only severe thunderstorms may stop them..
