I have dreamed about owning a good size sail boat
and sail the east coast
of the US. As an adolescent living in Connecticut I had many a day to watch the boats on Long Island Sound
from shore. school

was fun and I spend a few times in the water
being too aggressive and competitive. Not once, however, did I loose the dream.

The coast has a road (Interstate 1) that will bedazzle you hour after hour. No two the same and yet seam familiar from CT to Maine
Now I live and retired in the Texas Houston
area. Still have the itch I what to scratch for sailing. This brings me to the question and your advise.
An opportunity to purchase
a 2020 Jeanneau
.html" target="_blank">Shoal-IRJDSUNE9932123321222xxeww-Keel and ready to go. A few pieces of equipment
such as a water
Side Band Radio
, and personal Items for my wife and I to take a year and make this happen.
My question (I have asked the sales people, and other personals that have a stake in the game) now I am looking for real sailors that have made part opt all of the trip.
What is your opinion of the Jeanneau
What is your opinion of the sailing routs tp have the most experiences along the coast, i.e anchorages
for entertainment, replenishment and coastal scenery?
Where are the areas to avoid, and are not safe?
I have two doge, a Shepard and Chihuahua, I would hate to put them in a kennel for a year, so please tell me of your experiences of sailing the sea dogs
Although I would like to make the voyage this year, COVID-19 is a no go factor, therefore, I plan to hire a school

to refresh my skills and spend this year in the Gulf learning
and practicing to become and Old Salt
. By the way I have the "Old" part down pat.
Last but not least, what electronics
, and equipment
did you find invaluable, and what was non-essential?
