I traded the house and the wife for a boat also. I'm liveaboard
, do a lot of sailing, an occasional cruiser with a lot of offshore
passages and one ocean behind me. Auspicious is on Back Creek in Annapolis
. Be happy to meet your for lunch at Davis', EYC, or Boatyard (unless you want to meet somewhere nicer) and chat.
I'm a degreed naval architect and marine engineer
with a lot of professional and personal experience at sea. Send me a PM if you are interested and I'll send you my e-mail address.
Good luck with your pending transition!
sail fast and eat well, dave
