Hello!

My boyfriend and I moved onto his 33-ft sailboat a month ago, and we are slowly making our way down south with an eye to making it to the Caribbean (then maybe beyond)!

So far, it has been exciting, frustrating, serene, and comfortable. I never set foot on a sailboat before I met my boyfriend a few years ago, but I am certainly loving it! (And hating it at times--they don't kid when they say boats need lots of attention!)

Anyway, glad to be a member after reading from afar,
Jane

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Jane.

It sounds as though you're drawing rational conclusions from your experience, to date.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
I'm loving it and hating all the same time but of course I feel the same about my house and computer and trucks, etc. etc.
regards,
