I've been lurking here on the CF a few months now absorbing all the advise and experiences of the members. What a great group of members....thank you.
Cruising and liveaboard
has been a strong dream for the past 15 years. I've read most of the books
by Pardy, Hill, Casey, Toss etc. I have a Pearson
Wanderer that will be ready to splash next year. I think she will be a good boat to start with for coastal and Caribbean
cruising but I'm always open to constructive critique. I really want a boat with a shower
so a Pearson 365
or the like may be in my future. I posted a couple of pictures in my profile.
All my sailing experience was on a local lake in a 17 ft Oday day sailer many years ago before children
. I'm going to clean off the rust by getting ASA
101, 103 and 104 certified next month. I have concerns single
handing since I lost
my wife 3 years ago who was going to be a partner in this venture.
I hope that I will be able to contribute to this forum in the coming months and years and give back a little of what I have taken. I'm pretty good with diesel
and gas engines so that may be a start. I've been working on them all my life not in boats though.
Again thank you for a great forum.
