Another sailing neophite

Hi All
Well the story's pretty familiar to you all no doubt, dreams of packing it all in and running away to the sea. Ive been mining this site for some time for some excellent info and figured its time to join up and weigh in on some of the discussions. Without triggering the eternal debate Multis do it for me and to howls from the gallery Proa's really do it for me. Oh and when i run away im taking the kids and the wife with me. Ive been leaving sailing mags around the house for some time and she's finally taken the bait and now reads them as much as me . As the saying goes " I have a plan , a very cunning plan"

Cheers Tim

Welcome aboard cruisers forum Tim.

Having a cunning plan is a great idea. Just be glad you aren't like the sneaky dyslexic female acrobat. You know the one with the Cunning Stunt.

Sorry for that... Something twigged.

Join in the water is fine...

One step too far.
Your hooked now and she's going for it hook, line and sinker.
Make sure she doesn't read the 'What if your sailing partner says it's her or me' thread.

Aloha Tim,
Welcome aboard! Look into Wharram designs if multis and proas are your choice then Wharram is not too far off. Well only a little way off anyway.
kind regards,
JohnL
