Hi Rodney & Penny,
Oops - a little info about ourselves would be helpful wouldn't it.
I (Deb) am a voice-over person with 16 years experience (personally I don't like the term 'voice actor' as I don't think i'm much good at acting). I do that as a side business and to keep the security
of a regular "I know how much I'm getting this week wage" I write/produce/edit television commercials for a local tv station here in North Queensland
My husband (Ath) was a commercial
production cameraman/editor but after 18 years of the same old same old, he decided to quit the full-time drudgery and opted to become a freelancer instead. He also started up a mowing business where we live (50k's north of town). So, when he's not mowing or freelancing, he fishes or crabs.
We have only had experience in small power boats (both Haines, fibreglass monohulls) but love the ocean and when we had our boats we were always out on the water
at every opportunity.
We have come to the stage in life where we both want to live our dream so ... where do we start? After finding this forum we think this is a great place to begin.
We have both tried sailing (and nothing against anyone who does), neither of us enjoyed it. So, we have our eyes peeled for the right cruiser when the time comes.
In the meantime, we are enjoying the forum immensely and are sure to be regular visitors for all the information we can get.
Deb & Ath
