New to the board

My wife and I have recently purchased a 40 foot Mariner Ketch. We are hoping to leave on an extended cruise of the Caribbean in 18-24 months. I have just purchased a new engine that will be installed in the spring.
This is a fantastic board that will certainly be helpful to us in our efforts to get "Tivoli" ready to sail.

18-24 isn't enough


We came for about 1 to 1 1/2 years and we will be staying our for 3. The life style, sailing, and friendships are awesome.

We ran away to sea for a year in '92 - waded ashore Christmas of 2000. Still not nearly enough.
