I've recently caught the "sailing bug" and have become completely enthralled by the magic that I am seeing possible with the life of sailing from port to port and exploring isolated islands... it all seems far too romantic, and yet it also seems quite possible.
My only problem is, my wife hasn't quite seen what is so magical about what I'm talking about, although I think she will let me give it a try in a few years.
I am trying to find someone who lives around Long Beach who would be willing to take my wife on a tour of their sailing boat (preferably something over 35') so that she can see that living aboard
a boat is actually quite similar to living in a trailer or a motor
home (both of which we have done in the past quite comfortably).
I really can't offer anything in return except for my gratitude, but it would really mean a lot to me if someone would do this for us.
It probably wouldn't be until around the middle of July (we're visiting Long Beach then) and she's likely to be about 6mo pregnant at the time, but I really feel that if she can see how the boat looks and feels for real that she would change her mind.
