4 yrs ago my husband and I sat on the back porch watching the deer. My husband asked what do you want to do. I sail " I want to sail around the world" for as many years as we have left. We are late 40's & early 50's. Our house has sold and we are scrambling to sell, give away and trash the rest of our belongings. We have put an offer on a boat and will know within the next few weeks if we get this one. You can use a broker or walk the docks, great deals are everywhere. One thing I have discovered Is you must be kind of a handy guy and gal, or have money
. We looked for years at all sizes, shapes, models of sailboats. Get on every boat you can, spend vacations and all spare time. We purchased a 14' O'day and sailed it for 4 yrs on lake Travis, Buchanan, and also hauled it to the coast a few times. (I recommend Serendipity Bay Resort, in Polacious (spelling I never get it right) as they have little cabins and RV parking available) Once we get on the boat the training starts. ASA Sailing lessons
, Nav. classes
and the good ole' friends teaching freinds method. There are many, many avenues you can take. If you are committed you can do anything. If you want the name of a good broker and survey
in the Houston
area. Please PM me. Good luck and start now it is never to late.
