peoples. Hope to see some of you IRL out there.
I've got to a point of cruising now on a crummy boat
, rather than putting in more years at the grind to get a better boat
... because they all need work
anyway. That's my two cents (and a penny for your thoughts).
I've been sailing since I was a kid, and been guilty of Racing
. Had a small squadron of assorted plastic boats, 4 darn cool wooden ones, and some slightly weird stuff. 9/10ths of this was SF Bay
and Puget Sound
Now is the time to make a break. The House is getting sold
, the previous generation have passed, and the kids
don't have their own yet.
So my thought was: rather than Transpac to Hawa'ii to start, why not get a cheaper boat on the East Coast
, and ease into Cruising by doing the island chain in the Caribbean
? From there, who knows?
Currently i'm looking for a +38'-ish tub to do this on. I'm open to all kinds of suggestions and shared experience. I've gunkholed tons on ~30 footers and really want more room - as much as I can sail!
waves hello, and if the flag is up, come over for a G&T.
