Just Beginning

Hello'

My wife and I are just beginning our journey. We are in the process of trying to buy a Endeavour 43 ketch. We have a long road ahead of us but can't wait to get started. Looking forward to talking to and meeting members.

Thanks
Mike and Amy

Re: Just Beginning

Hi Mike and Amy and welcome to the forum.

If you haven't been lurking already this place is a great resource. My just beginning was over 40 years ago and I still learn lots on the forum. It's my go to place for tech questions.

So where do you plan to start your boating careers?

Re: Just Beginning

Hey Skipmac,

Thanks for the welcome. We are in Virginia Beach right now. So that is where we will start. We have a long road ahead of us but we can't wait to start. We have a two year plan before we will be ready to head south for good. I will tell the story one day of how this all came together. but I just want to say this. NEVER stop believing in miracles because they do still happen! More on that later.
Thanks

Re: Just Beginning

Howdy and Welcome Aboard CF Mike and Amy!

Many years ago I seriously considered the Endeavour 43 as a possible liveaboard cruiser. It is very roomy inside.

Good luck on your boat purchase, and Bon Voyage on the Forum and the water.
