Howdy and Welcome Aboard CF!
Sounds like a great plan to me.
Retiring to the South Pacific
too? That would be nice.
Since you are new to this forum, let me mention a few things you might miss but that could help you more enjoy your time here:
B]There is a free Cruiser's Wiki associated with this forum. [/B]
There is a LOT of free content in that wiki. Including "cruising guides."
There are also some "social groups" that are more focused on special interests, and as I saw, they can be fun for their members. I am not a member
of those groups, but you should be able to find them if you do some exploring of the forum website, look for "groups."
Cruisers & Sailing Forums - All Groups
on a cruise
would be GREAT. I bet it will be a GRAND adventure for all of you and the stuff of many wonderful memories.
