Re: The Geriatric Vessel

More good news. I presented a few excellent options to Nancie that we could pursue right away and she insisted that we keep the ketch we have for at least three or four more years. 'looks like more sailing for now! At least I know of some options that will keep us off the shore! Thanks, everyone!

Re: The Geriatric Vessel

I love the idea.

I often look (on brokers' pages) towards what is in the UK called a 'narrowboat' - basically a narrow, live-aboard, barge. How you set yours up is up to you and it will take you everywhere there is a river or a canal.

Good luck in this project. I am sure it will be great fun!

Congrats on that! Excellent news indeed, that you'll be avoiding The Dark Side for three or four more years.
