Taking the Plunge Tomorrow

Well after lurking for some time and absorbing a lot of knowledge from this and other forums we're finally set to go. We close on our Endeavour 40 tomorrow that my wife and I will transition into living aboard over the coming couple of months. We have many projects lined up to make it our own and will be asking many questions, but we are ready for our transition. While we are excited and scared in equal measures it's our first step in our goal of long-term cruising and it definitely feels right. We look forward to trying to contribute as much as we take from here (though it may be some time before this happens).

Welcome to the forum and good luck with the closing. Hopefully you planned list of projects isn't too long and you don't uncover too many new projects for the list.

We are here to answer the questions, lots of good people around these parts.

SkiprJohn,

Yep, this is the same layout as our boat. We have a few nicer items that the one in the video doesn't show (4.4kw genset, 16k btu a/c, watermaker, ssb, radar, full dodger and bimini which we have dubbed the "bubble", and mast furling main & head sails) but all in all that's the one. We wanted something that would be very comfortable as a liveaboard and would allow us to gain some coastal cruising experience (my wife is new to sailing) over the next few years until we can afford our dream blue water cruising cat. While this isn't my first sailboat, it is definitely the largest that I have owned, and I look forward to gaining experience with these more advanced systems. Here is a picture of her under sail.
