This will be quick because my long version disappeared because I took to long to type it in - I think.
I appreciate the range of answers and it helps me to focus. I'm excited because I think it is at least a very real possibility. I have to deal with the legal
complications of a discriminatory termination first, so I have 8 to 20 months before I need to commit finally. Nice thing is, it "HAs" to be a total life makeover due to personal issues, and I "WANT" to make a big change because it is how I have always done my life.
To jsoceanlord - I have sent an email
and I sincerely appreciate the offer. I hope that I will be able to help crew your journey to Hawaii
- a true modern adventure I think.
To talbot - I enjoy more things about the "shoreline" life, than any other experience I have had. I do need some hard experience to make sure I am more of a pirate rather than a beach bum. Pretty sure I will take to sailing lifestyle like an octopus = secretive and seldom seen, but at home in the ocean all the same.
To pjop - very important info for me. I wondered if I could be more frugal with a refit
, rather than a new boat. The 35 to 45 foot vessels I've looked at online seem to be running in the $175,000 US to 250,000 range. I could possibly do it, but it would probably stretch my life a bit to thin.
Got to go. I will be lurking about and saying hello here and there. I am so tied up with legalities, upgrading my home to rent, and planning that I won't talk much. Besides, I take 3 or 4 times as long to compose an email
than most, so it tend to listen more than talk.
