Short hello - in an accidental imitation of Lyle Lovett's "Boat and Pony" song, we from Wyoming have finally followed through on the long held cruising dream and put it into concrete action ---
Last year, put the place in Wyoming in "cold storage" (so to speak), scoured the coastal US and ended up buying
a beautifully equipped Mason 33 in San Diego
a year ago (March). Out cruising, ended up here in San Francisco
Bay area this January for awhile, earning $$ for the cruising kitty, gaining valuable cold water
experience for northern adventure dreams, and working on boat projects.
We both have extensive ocean travel backgrounds on little sailboats, kayaks, and other people's larger sailboats. Having crewed on a handful of passages, it is fun to be out working towards that big dream and leap on our own.
Looking forward to contributing to and gleaning from the wonderful cameraderie of cruisers that we have experienced for years out on the water
--- nice to have access to that online!
