10 Day Cruise

Anybody know of a cruising couple who are willing to host a married couple (50+) for 10 days anywhere in the USA. We have the dream but would like to spend a little time with a couple who already live the dream so we can ask all the dumb questions about the cruising life. Needless to say, we will pay our way.

Re: 10 day cruise

If you can't find someone to take you up on your offer, try a bareboat Caribbean charter. You won't get much chance to pick someones brains, but it will give you the chance to see if the life is for you.

Hi there

We are recent live-aboards in West Palm Beach and in the beginnings of starting to charter on our Leopard 40. We recently did something similar for a couple asking the same questions as you. They are on CF as:

Mark0978 or HeavenlyFlower

If you were interested in contacting them about us and their experience. We could help you out. If interested PM myself and my husband Shaktisboy.

You should PM the Shaktis, and consider them for your 10 day of adventure on their boat. You'll be dealing with an easy going professional couple! Highly recommended!

Re: 10 Day Cruise

Hi Roger! Click on "ShaktiGurl", two threads above...then click on "contact information"...then click on, "PM or her e-mail address". To avoid spamming her e-mail address, I'm not going to post it on here, but you can access it through her profile's page! Sail away and have a ball!

You can also get in touch with Mark and here:

They were visiting Florida and wanted to spend a few days checking out a catamaran and live-aboard life, picking brains, etc. so we invited them over. We are hoping to meet up again at the boat show">Miami boat show next year
