Newby from Cobourg

Hi folks, this is my first post.
I was born in Guernsey, Channel Islands UK, moved to Windsor, Ontario, Canada with parents and sister in 1958 and then moved to Cobourg, Ontario in 1982 to work at General Foods/Kraft Canada Inc and to where I reside now. The trip to Canada involved sailing to Belfast from Guernsey on the Dutch coaster "Nike"(pronounced Nicky). From there we sailed across to Glasgow via ferry and finally shipped off to Canada on the Canadian Pacific liner "The Empress of Britain" landing in Montreal Oct 23, 1958 from Greenock, Scotland.
I own and have owned several types of small craft.
I'm an avid pursuer of knowledge of anything that floats.
Graham
