Newbe from Pensacola, Fl.

Well I have been lurking for a while and reading many posts. I have let my mind wonder to the point of not being able to go to sleep. For that I do thank many of you. My family had a 30 ft sailboat some 30 years ago and I do miss it. I have been married for 20 years and fear that will be over soon. I have wanted to have a liveaboard for a long time but family and finances have been hard. I'm 42 and its my turn to have a life for me. I have many questions, many have been answered on here and I will continue to read on. I am looking at a monohull so I will post my questions their. I do want to say thank you all for a great read. James

Well from experience I can say that sometimes the end of a relationship can be the best thing that every happened. Didn't seem like it at the time when it happened to me but that's what ended up getting me on the ocean.

Good luck


The water is always bluer on the other side of the ocean.

Good to have you posting here. After my signature there are a couple of references, one is a link to look at. Here's another Mahina Expedition - Offshore Cruising Instruction
