Thanks for responding. WE had given up on anyone residing along the coast. While in TN we stopped at a marina in Knoxville, by the time we arrived no one was there, many had gone out for the night. We raced sailboats but now we just want to slow down and enjoy life a little more. The books
sugarcoat it all, we would like to know real issues, problems, the good and the bad before we start on the avenue. Selling it all, leaving family
behind is a big adjustment and is it really worth it. Once my husband gets his new career set up so he can work on line(drafting) it will be more comforting. Since we really don't know the expense of living aboard
. Its scary but we are anxious to get this done. We will be back in NC in March.
