Hello everyone, just another newbie here.
I am seeking any and all information one would have to help me realize a 20 plus year dream.
I would like to build a sailboat with the intention of living on board and sailing around the world. Notice I said "like to", I do realize building a seaworthy
boat is not a small undertaking. But I have looked around enough to know it can be done, just not nearly as romantic as it sounds in all likelihood. A lot more work than romance if you know what I mean. Granted the romance is probably way sweeter in the end when you do.
I am a complete newbie on this as the only sailboat I have ever been underway on was the Coast Guard Cutter
Eagle. It was a short 6 day stay where I was working on the ships electronics
and in no way had anything to do with the actual navigation
and sailing of the ship.
Like I said, this is a dream I have had for over 20 years, there is no actual sailing experience in these dreams. Granted I have been underway on ships and boats of all persuasions when it comes to power boats, sail is another story.
Anyway, feel free to leave me any tips or ask any questions.
