Smile Hello

I just found this forum today!

My husband and I are from the UK but live in Canada, we are planning on retiring in the next 18-24 months. Our dream is to buy a boat in the Mediterranean (probabley Greece) and livaboard for a few years. We have had several sailing holidays around the Greek Islands and feel very much at home there.

I am sure we will hit many pit falls along the way so we will be asking lots of questions on here, please be gently with us.

Re: Hello

Welcome to CF Monmouth!

We're all a seriously friendly bunch here... Or is that a friendly serious bunch??? You'll find great help with mediocre humor attached to it, at no extra charge...

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair...

Mai Tai's fix everything...

Re: Hello

welcome to the forum.
