Hello from Michigan

I've been lurking here for some time now, but I'm pleased to announce that my family and I will be going on our first captained charter tomorrow night to test the waters so to speak.

My father put the dream of retiring on a boat into my head when I was a teenager. I remember him taking me to marinas in Detroit and asking me if I could be comfortable living on this boat or that boat with him. His dream was to have a powerboat.

My dream is to join many of you here in retiring (as soon as possible!) to a beautiful sailboat. I've managed to infect my husband too!

Looking forward to getting to know all of you here! And I'll let you know how our first outing on a 41' Bristol goes. So excited!

Congratulations on the first steps. I hope you all have a truly wonderful experience. Starting out on a Bristol, not shabby at all.

Thanks for the welcome! Our cruise tonight was a wash due to thunderstorms, so we're trying again tomorrow evening... Fingers crossed!
