I am a potential full-time cruiser. Still debating whether or not to launch this plan sooner-than-later however. I've read everything I can get my hands on regarding sailing with a dog, and frankly I'm just not convinced that it's a good plan for my Standard Poodle. How crazy is that - hinging life plans on the well-being of an animal, but as hard as it might be for some to understand - my dog is my best friend.
When I was considering which boat would work for my ventures, I was really drawn to multi-hull vessels as the best choice for many reasons. Then came the reality of how much they cost!!! It's unbelievable!!
So, I will still continue to dream and plan for the hopeful future of sailing, but for now - guess I'll go hiking with my buddy...
