Just a quick update... I just finished a major sea trial for the boat. I went looking for heavy weather
and found it. It was a real confidence builder
in both the boat and myself.
I haven't been advertising my plans in case they didn't work out, but with the success of the sea trial I'm ready.
I'm headed out at the end of the month to sail to Hawaii
and then on to Anacortes, Wa, where I'll meet up with the admiral and the lad to spend a month or so cruising the PNW. It's been quite a ride up till this point, and I wouldn't trade
a minute of it. When we first started getting serious (or when I started getting serious and the PR campaign began) my focus was on the destination
. After some years of coastal cruising and refitting, I've come to realize that it's more the journey. Along the way we've spent more time together as a family
than just about anyone we know.
So while I'm still a wannabe passage
maker (hopefully not for much longer), I've gotten more out of this so far than I'd even dared to dream back then. I'm not sure where I stand with the wannabe card, but wherever that is I'll gladly claim it.
