Hi from a long time lurker (8 years maybe). Long story short. I wanted to buy a sailboat years back but couldnt find the "right" boat. I actually was doing more working so I wasnt able to cruise
anyway. I didnt want to be a dock
Queen. Then I bought a 43' Hatteras. It really was the only way I could get my wife hooked on living aboard
. Three years later we have been traveling the ICW
and making new friends and loving every minute of the cruising life style. We have been in Boot Key for the last three weeks and taking off for Cape Coral
Tomorrow. We will end up in Stuart, Fl. as too work (yuk) a couple months. We have seen some fantastic cruising sailboats here and were asked to go out sailing on a mono and a Cat. I think we are hooked. We love our Hatteras, so it will be hard to part with her. I look towards finding that "right" boat again to do some long range cruising.
