My wife and I went to a boat show
last summer looking at offshore fishing
boats. Very large, very expensive (even more than sailboats). But we started thinking "Hey there are no gas stations in the middle of the ocean." So we took a look at a few sailboats and got hooked.
Since then, we took an ASA
101 class in November. Sailed some capri
22's through the winter
. Took the 103 class last weekend. Now looking to charter
some 30 - 35 foot boats.
We are in the process of getting ready to buy a boat
in that range to do some coastal cruising. Mostly Channel Islands and Northern Baja
. Although I think that buying
process will take some time. Maybe next year.
Long term we hope to buy a 40-50 size boat
. (ahh someday).
Anyway, thats my stroy and I am sticking to it. I doubt I will be posting
much (too new to know everything). But I will be reading a lot of the posts learning
as much as I can.
