There was a thread talking about ideas for getting your wife on board. A lot of good ideas there. With all the snow we have received the last few days, and the forecast for the rest of the week being more snow, and how much my wife complains about the snow...

So, I've been trying to figure out, when the time comes, where I want to have my boat.

US west coast makes sense because it is closest to where I live, but is the least interesting to me.

We love the Caribbean. If i just want to stay in the Caribbean, can you just avoid the hurricanes during the season, or is it best to go north or south out of the hurricane areas.

South Pacific would be interesting, but probably not my starting area.

I think we could spend the rest of our lives exploring Europe and the Mediterranean. But where do you go in the winter. Seems the Mediterranean is colder than I want for winter, and even the Canaries seem like they may be too cold for the winter.

So I am starting to think the Caribbean is where I'll study the most.

Re: My wife thinks I'm Mr Toad

If your wife is not the adventuresome type to begin with, talking her into it will likely result in resentment and failure.

Can it be done, absolutely. Sailing ain't rocket science, look at all the idiots who do it now.
