Welcome aboard! I am Rick Newman the administrator for Wooden Boat People (WBP). I have approved almost 2,000 plus members of WBP and don't remember anyone from Greenwich Village. I have to ask where you might be boating. We have members from all over the world; Russia, Argentina, Midwest USA and of course the Western United States.
We have many knowledgeable people with a great deal of experience. We are happy to answer questions and share our knowledge.
