Bucky205- I'm taking a sabbatical from work for about 2-3 years after a long health
ordeal that I'm lucky to have survived. At 35 it was a real wake-up to take advantage of the time we have in life and has completely changed my outlook on what is important. I'm closing my law practice and my one day dream has become a driving passion. Like many of us I became lost
in the long work weeks and acquisition of 'stuff' to justify the lifestyle and had forgotten that it is the experiences and not the money
that matter most. I can afford to go for a few years at least. Needless to say I have gotten more than a few 'critiques' from people that don't understand my decision and change in lifestyle, but you have to follow your heart because we all only get one chance in life. It seems that things have worked out where almost all my cases will be wrapped up by the end of the year. Without a long time to search I decided to go with a proven builder
that had a great reputation and have come across a few IP owners with larger boats that spoke very highly of them. I'll be joining one of them on a trip to the Bahamas
in November and that should be a great experience. It isn't that I believe IPs are the be all end all, but with limited time I thought I would try to narrow down and get to know as much as possible about them, hope I'm taking the right approach!
I really appreciate you taking the time to give me your thoughts.
