Thanks, we hope to sail south through oswego this fall. Down to he Chesapeake for the boat show
and to wait out hurricane
season. After that south if we are cold, maybe over to Bahamas
But if the boat or we aren't ready, haul out
here for the winter and go next summer.
Obviously I'd rather stick with plan a, but I won't force it.
And yes, we are retired. We just have some stuff to finish up this summer with the kids
, and liquidating possessions.
We took it out for our first sail yesterday. Everything worked, well mostly. I found out what happens to autopilot
when you store metal tools next to the compass(thanks Cf, I remembered a thread about that)
We have done a lot of cleaning
, sorting, and organizing. It is becoming ours, and I have been sleeping better than I can ever remember.
