It has been alot of prep work, but we are finally setting sail in 30 days. 18 months ago we purchased a Tayana 37
and believe that we have her ready to go. The boat has had work and upgrades completed, I am loading the last of the provisions, spare parts
are stored. We have a complete first aid kit, ditch bag, charts books
etc. (I don't know how some people decide to buy a boat and take off within months, we could never do that.) I still feel like I haven't learned enough but will continue to pour over the recommended books
We plan to spend the first two years exploring the Caribbean
and then who knows.......
