Hello from the OC, CA

Hi,
Husband and I will semi retire in 2 to 3 years and have begun researching the type of boat we will buy in the next year or so. The dream is to be out cruising for up to 5 years. Could be shorter or longer depending on health and whether we turn out to be the ducks we think we are. Going to charter for a week this summer in our old stomping grounds -- the Canadian Pacific Northwest out of Nanaimo. Have been reading posts on this forum for a couple of months now and very impressed with the quality of comments and help offered by all.

Re: Hello from the OC, CA

Thank you for the greetings. Right now our favorite is the Moody 41 AC. Would like a newer model if we have the budget for it. Probably change our minds 100 times before we buy.
