Hi.

I'm Ape. Marine veteran and MC veteran. It's time to put my retirement/escape plan into play. I'm selling my classic Jeep and my Harley, and buying a sailboat, somewhere in the 27-34ft LOA range. The plan is to spend a few months in Corpus or Houston getting her ready, then maybe 6 months in the Gulf/Caribbean getting used to how she handles, then heading out to parts unknown.

Re: Hi.

Howdy and Welcome Aboard CF!

There are many resources here on CF that can help you learn about boats, sailing, navigation, seamanship, cruising, live aboard life, and much more. Take some time to click on the various forums, and view some of the threads on more than just the first page of topics. You will find many hours of potential good reading.

I hope you enjoy your time on the forum, and hopefully in the future when you go sailing too.

Re: Hi.

If by future, you mean the next 6 months... This is not a new idea for me, but one I've been planning for the better part of a decade.

Re: Hi.

Thank you for the support. But I'm just a nerd with a bad knee. I have brothers who are far more deserving of your thanks.

Turned out to be 8 months, but the plan was there...
