Boat: Four Winns H190, Tanzer 26
Posts: 2

Hello there everyone,
I've been lurking here for a while but am about to make a new purchase and life change, and thought I should ask some questions.

About me...
I'm a happily married 43 year old that has done the tech game for 20 years and looking at semi-retiring and doing something else.

Been on and in the water since before I could walk and have a Four Winns H190 and last year I convinced 2 of my brothers and my father to buy a Tanzer 26 together.

But back to the change in life... My lovely wife loves the stability of a cat so for long term living aboard a cat is the way it will be. It makes sense to us as everything I have read and learned in life is that a happy wife makes for a happy life.

As such, we are just waiting for our house to sell and we will be buying a Lagoon 450F 4 cabin. I've been researching this for about 4 years getting to this stage.

Anyway.. that's about it for now. If you have any questions or things I should know.. please get in touch with me.

Re: Greetings

Welcome to the forum. I don't know too many guys unhappily married, so I hope we all are. I hope you're happy with the cat choice. There are a few negatives that go along with it...higher (much higher) slip rents and going to weather I hear is not the best.
