From Lamoine, Maine

We are a family of four getting ready for sailing to Florida in November aboard our vessel Moira, a Hans Christian 38 that we have restored over the last 6 years.

Re: From Lamoine, Maine

I love Hans Christian Yachts. Many years ago we visited Hans Christian in Long Beach (if I remember correctly) and I was not only impressed, I seriously considered purchasing one for myself. I also inspected a shoal draft Hans Christian 48 in Fort Lauderdale, and was again tempted to make the jump to Hans Christian.

You have a great boat and adventure awaits.

We hope so. It is our dream come true. Just broke the "chain" by selling our house recently.

Re: From Lamoine, Maine

Hard to know whether to sell this house if you can afford to keep it.

We are starting a refit on Exit Only, and for the time being, I am keeping the house.

I have to admit that I never wanted a house, but at least it does not drag anchor in a storm!

Re: From Lamoine, Maine

Well done. By trading your house for a boat that you restored yourself - you are following the advice of Arthur Ransome in both a physical and spiritual sense:

Houses, are but badly built boats so firmly aground that you cannot think of moving them. They are definitely inferior things, belonging to the vegetable not the animal world, rooted and stationary, incapable of gay transition. I admit, doubtfully, as exceptions, snail-shells and caravans. The desire to build a house is the tired wish of a man content thenceforward with a single anchorage. The desire to build a boat is the desire of youth, unwilling yet to accept the idea of a final resting-place.

Godspeed and Good Luck on your journey.
