Hello from Colorado!

Hello, name is Conrad and I am looking into getting into cruising. I really have been wanting to do this for the last 5 years since I took a trip to Catalina island in Cali. The wife and I are debating on maybe selling the house moving back to San Diego and perhaps living on a cat. We have 4yo and a 9mo old and think we will wait about a year and a half and make the plunge. Plus tooling around on my friends Hobie has got the sailing bug in me.
We are thinking get the move to SD and get a monohull till we know its for sure what we want. But we have been reading the forum and feel this will be great for our family.

Hope to get to know a lot of you, and hope you dont get annoyed with our questions.. lol

Hi Conrad and welcome aboard Cruisers Forum. Plenty of people around here with the sailing bug. A move to San Diego, if you can afford it, will really fuel the fever!

Good luck on your plans.

Aloha Conrad,
Welcome aboard! Let us know if you have any questions. There are a few forum members from San Diego here. I liked it a lot when I was there in the 70s and 80s.
Kind regards,
