We are very excited, after months of looking, negotiations, trepidation, and moving it will finally happen. We move aboard the Columbia
45 we bought in San Diego
and look forward to many adventures aboard.
We were lucky the house in Florida
sold within a few days. The worst part was driving cross country with the trailer
on back of the car. I never want to tow with a front wheel
drive vehicle again, I'll take a good old rear wheel
drive pickup anytime for towing. A 4 cylinder Rav 4 is not a good tow vehicle. A great regular car but not for towing.
We've been with the kids
for the last couple of weeks until the PO got all her stuff off the boat
. We've got everything ready and move aboard Tuesday.
well and everything checked out so we are ready to go. No big trips until we become accustomed to sailing again our last live aboard was power and it has been 12 years since I've sailed anything. So we are going to take classes
again and have a certified captain
check us out on our boat
. Then we can start local cruising.
As they always say I'd rather say I tried it then saying I wish I had tried that when I am too old to do anything.
