Greetings from Texas

Hello ALL. I grew up in Florida sailing and racing sailboats. My wife and I have always had a sailboat but sold the last one 2 years ago. We are in the process of trying to semi-retire (working for ourselves) and do ALOT more sailing. We just purchased a 2003 Beneteau 473 in Houston, Texas. She is in the process of getting new canvas, roller furlings redressed, etc. and we hope to be off to Florida and then back to the Bahamas by Summer. Time will tell. We plan to live aboard a month or two and then fly home to catch up, then back to the boat. We are really looking forward to getting back to sailing. Will be posting some questions as the internet access has definitely changed and made access to work (only if needed) more possible. Hope to see some of you all along the way in our travels.
