Greetings from Texas

Hello all from North Texas,

Although my wife and I live near Ft. Worth, we are really transplanted Californians who do our sailing in the BVI. Dallas is the largest base for American Airlines, I fly 767's on international routes for them. No boat yet (unless you count the Laser we used to own), all of our ocean sailing is chartering.

We have wondered if there are many owners who rent/lease their boats for extended periods. If so are there brokers who specialize in that? We would like to spend more time cruising than the typical one or two week charter from Sunsail etc. but are not ready to pull the trigger on ownership yet.

Aloha Dennis and Gail,
Welcome aboard!! Hope you enjoy the forum. Just got off a 737 from Oakland to Hilo. Since its a once a year thing it is a big deal for me.
I don't know about renting or leasing cruisers but maybe other questions I could answer. I know that pulling that trigger is not that hard. Keeping the gun loaded might be.
Kind Regards,
