Hello from a New Member

I have been landlocked for the past 20 years and have decided to return to open water. If all goes well I will be cruising again by March 2011.
P.S. Should have never left the water.

You damn right, you shoulda never left! What on Earth were you thinking!? And being landlocked...I mean, I could understand (maybe) stepping off the decks for a few years while maintaining visual contact with the planet's source of life. But landlocking!? God almighty, God almighty, GOD ALMIGHTY, it's simply outrageous.

On a more serious note, glad to have you here Got a boat in mind?

Hi I am new to this forum. We are looking at a 34' Irwin to use to island hop and a Keys boat. Any suggestions and recommendations if this is a good boat?

Re: Hello from a New Member

Welcome aboard BMom! Before you consider buying any boats, how are your seamanship skills? You will need to work on these, prior to taking the next step. The next step is...chartering 2 or 3 boats that you'd like to sail/familiarize yourself with. Once you complete this step, you'll be ready to shop around. There are plenty of Old Salts around here who would be willing to advise you on your sailboat picks. Let us know how you're progressing. Mauritz

I have been around boats my whole life, mostly power boats. The sailing is a new adventure my husband and I are looking forward to. We have a boat we are interested in and plan on looking at in next week. What is the best way to have the interned and a TV while traveling?
