This site is dedicated to the TomCat, the sailboat and hopefully sailing adventures of Thom and whomever joins me on my ventures.

My current boat is a 2000 Com-Pac 23/ III.  I purchased her in July 2013.  She sits in a slip (hopefully not too often) in Hammond Marina, Hammond, In.  My plan to to primarily sail this Com Pac 23 on Lake Michigan with an occasional road trip/ cruise to some more exotic areas including Florida Keys and the Bahamas (eventually).

I do not have a lot of experience with sailing although I have owned a few boats in the past.  Since she is sitting in a slip, relativity close to work and home, I hope to take her out a lot and get much more sailing time and experience.  I believe Sailing on Lake Michigan will provide me with a nice variety of sailing experiences on a large body of water.

On the pages that follow you will find my “ships log”, information on my Com-Pac 23, general information about the Com-Pac 23 and anything else I decide to include.

The Ships (B)Log is primarily a blog site where I will post details about sailing my Com Pac 23. I intend to try to log most of the sailing that I do here.  There will also be pictures and videos that are taken.  If you peruse these blogs you’ll quickly learn that I am pretty new to sailing.

I also am including information specific to my Com Pac 23 including upgrades, maintenance, costs, sailing characteristics, etc.  I am tracking the costs of ownership and if you want that information – you need to send me an email so I can enable you to look at that information.

In the area listed a Com Pac 23, I include general information about the Com Pac 23 including links, data, other sailors and just a variety of information I find useful about the Com Pac 23.

I hope you enjoy the site.

I look forward to your comments at Thomeng55@yahoo.com
