The Time Has Come!

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 on route.

We plan to spend the first two years exploring the Caribbean and then who knows.......

I'm the most jealous sort of boatless land dweller - I live on an island!

Congratulations.... And even more so on getting the boat ready- even though we started cruising, our 'to-do' list keeps growing.

Hopefully our paths will cross. We enjoy meeting cruisers as we sail and anchor... and even more so with other T-37's.

Best of luck.
