pirate Hello Everyone

Greetings from downunder,

I'm new to the forum - looks like alot of great interaction on this site.

My husband and I have done about 65,000 bluewater sailing around the world; did crewing professionally on private yachts and charter yachts. Quite a bit of cruising in our own yacht too.

Back in the market for a boat of our own. Looking forward to chatting with you.

Cheers - PJ

Thanks everyone.
@defjef: Indeed!
@MarkJ: Looking for solid cruising yacht, as we plan to go offshore again at some point. In the past we've owned an islander 44 and taswell 43. Use to crew on the bigger Oysters, but too expensive for us (lovely boats though!). Currently considering a Peterson 44. Market here is limited. May have to go offshore to buy.

Aloha and Welcome aboard!
Good to have you here with all your experience I'll bet you have lots of input on some of these threads.
My project is a Cascade 42. You probably don't want a project though.
regards,

Aloha and thanks SkiprJohn. Originally from Kaneohe, Oahu. Prefer to find something closer to home here, but we shall see. Wouldn't mind sailing from Hawaii through the south pacific again though! Although I don't think my employer would be impressed! Ahh well. One day again soon...
