Well, I'll try to be vague for fear of jinxing it. Last year I ordered a new cruising catamaran
which is being built in Europe
. As this is comming to it's conclusion, it has been everything but smooth, and I'm not talking about the manufacturer. I should be able to take a big breath sometime next week. Since I can no longer sleep, I have determined to read every post on the forum. Look for future posts from me titled: Bank Nightmare, Who To Trust?, I need WHAT Coverage?, Who really owns this boat
?, and The Worlds Greatest Consolation Prize (maybe). I'm sorry I can't say more, but you should get the idea. If all goes well, I will be crossing the Atlantic on my new catamaran
(assisting the delivery
crew) before the years end. Right now I'm wondering is it worth it? At the very least I will have a wealth of advice for someone contemplating the purchase
of a new boat!
My dream is to cruise
in beautiful warm locations all over the world, for as long as it is enjoyable and rewarding. I will start in the Caribbean
. I think I am ready. I will not be cruising full time just yet, but I will get a good taste of it. I suppose second thoughts are natural.
of the little seal was taken when I flew to the Galapagos
Islands a couple of years ago. I hope to sail there on my own boat
someday. I do not recommend the seal as a pet. Guinea pigs and kittens are fun. Whatever you do, don't ever let anyone talk you into a pigmy goat. Very cute, very messy, and VERY LOUD! That story will be filed under "Dumbest things I've ever done".
