Ahoy There

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.html" target="_blank">Sailing-IRJDSUNE9932123321222xxeww-school during summer vacation was fun and I spend a few times in the water being too aggressive and competitive. Not once, however, did I loose the dream.

Coastal england.html" target="_blank">New-IRJDSUNE9932123321222xxeww-England, for all of you that have not experienced tha part of the world has a mix of 300 year old villages and towns with new and fresh areas to keep you interested. 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 54'. keel.html" target="_blank">Shoal-IRJDSUNE9932123321222xxeww-Keel and ready to go. A few pieces of equipment such as a water maker, Single Side Band Radio, charts, 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 54?
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 (Sea Dogs LOL)?

Although I would like to make the voyage this year, COVID-19 is a no go factor, therefore, I plan to hire a school.html" target="_blank">sailing-IRJDSUNE9932123321222xxeww-school and a captain 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?

Thank you.
