My husband Ron and I have lived-aboard for 34 years. We currently have a 1987 49' DeFever CMY trawler, which we purchased new. We returned to Long Beach Ca last June after cruising for 2 years 8 months through Mexico, Central America, Panama (thru the Canal), and back again to California. We are leaving again this November to cruise Mexico for 7 months. Most of our summer days are spent at the Isthmus, Catalina Island. If you happen by Lazy Days in your travels, stop by to say HI

It would seem Cruising works well for you. It's always good know that sometimes the magic works well! Perhaps you might write down some stories, experiences, or just good things that work for us all to share.

Should you have interest in new and far away places, technologies, or just good recipes we have people just about everywhere on the planet and would be happy to offer information on whatever may be of concern.

Welcome! Hope you enjoy the camaraderie of this forum, and it sounds like you have much to contribute. Catalina Island is certinly a beautiful spot.
