Great forum. Im a 27 yr old bloke from Milford Sound, NZ. Me and the mrs are finding the cruising dream is keeping us awake longer at night more and more.
So far the plan is buy a small proven vessel and visit the Pacific Islands during our off season at work (june-september) to see whether we float well or not. I skipper
a 60ft motor
vessel for a living, taking tourists on sightseeing trip. We also own a 28ft launch on one of the lakes here that we spend a fair bit of time on. Haven't been sailing since sea scouts though, hoping to pick things up along the way.
Whaddya reckon, worth a go or just dreaming?
