Hi fellow cruisers

We are ages 64(me) and 67(her) and have just joined Cruiser Forum and are in the process of looking for a late model L440 or similar in the Med to go permanent live-aboard cuising. Looking forward to searching and finding all the things we need to know about. She trying to become enthuiastic - described as getting sea-sick at the picture of a wet lawn, He having wanted to go sailing FOREVER! Ex Navy - RAN 21 years with lots of sea-time and experience but none on sailing catamarans. So much looking forward to a trip to Croatia and Turkey late Oct / early Nov to find a suitable late model boat like a 3-cab L440 or similar.

Delighted to join
