House For Sale. Soonish.

Hello everyone.

One of my earliest childhood memories is that of being on a small fishing boat in what from my perspective could have been the middle of the ocean. Need I say more? I don't know a lot about sailing, but I hope to learn enough to be able to pilot my own seaworthy vessel within the next couple of years. Who needs a home you can't drop anchor from anyway?

Welcome aboard. The hardest thing about this lifestyle is taking the first step.

Good luck in your plans from another Canuck 7h!

Re: House For Sale. Soonish.

Thank you so much Celestialsailor. I've been thinking about doing this for years. Might be a while, but I can't wait to speak those same words myself!

Thank you so much! Hoping to set sail within the next 12 months but not sure if that's a realistic expectation. Even if I had the boat already, I barely know a jib from a main.

Re: House For Sale. Soonish.

I was born in Hamilton. I'm sitting here on my Halberg Rassy in San Diego waiting to cross over into Mexico. If you're determined, it can be done...Just ask my ex-wives.

That's awesome!!!! I'm determined. It's only a matter of time. No ex-wives but a few potentials. You can ask one of them. hehe Have fun in Mexico!!

Re: House For Sale. Soonish.

Best to have potential ex-wives instead of actual ex-wives.
Aloha and welcome aboard!
If sailing lessons are available I recommend them. You can sail without them but it'll be a harder learning curve and some important things might be missed.
