We are Rosa Linda and Nathan, to be known collectively in these forums
by our boat's name, which is "Hakuna Matata."
We're a couple from the mountains of New Mexico
that just put all our stuff in storage
, bought a 42' sailing catamaran
in Fort Lauderdale
and moved aboard with two little girls and a German Shepherd.
We have been aboard for about 6 weeks and are now in West Palm Beach preparing for our first crossing to the Bahamas
. We would love to meet up with others who will also be crossing soon. Just awaiting our dog's import
papers and favorable weather
Also, very much interested in any ideas on making it all work
with a 2 and 4 year old on board. We have been reading many of your posts with interest (how to train a dog to go on the "poop deck
," what safety
suggestions people have for kids
, etc.) and look forward to contributing in whatever way we can along the way.
