Allo from Canada

My name is Mario and my wife is Lyne two new young retired from the Canadian forces and our plan was to travel around the world in our Sailboat Hunter 41DS 2008 that we bought 2 years ago, We were ready to go this year after preparing for the pass 5 years (many ASA courses and hrs of hand on sailing). The beginning of our voyage was schedule for October 2011. But due of my wife knees, back and hips condition that got worst this year we had to change our retired plan, doing sailing is a lot of work and this is not a stable environment (heel) for my wife condition. We decided to change from a sailboat to a power boat like a trawler to live aboard and travel the east coast through the center America then on west coast and back, for the next 4 to 5 years taking our time and visiting places on a slow pace.

waiting for the sale of asset, hope this will not to be long

Re: Allo from Canada

Sounds like a great plan. I'm sure you'll have some good stories for us along the way.

Re: Allo from Canada

Welcome. Nice photo. I am sure you will enjoy life on the water on a power boat just as much. The key is being "on the water."
