Elaine and I have been following your forum for a while. After about a years frustration on purchasing
(Lagoon) we are about to settle on our pre retirement
dream. We are from Bay of Islands with our own mooring
at home and intend to increase our skills at this stage in our home cruising grounds. We have sailed small boats since 1996 but nothing for the last 15 years so it will be an interesting time. We have bought a Manta
42 which we take ownership
of in early November and then sail it home to start our adventure.
Elaine is mid 50's and I am 62.
We appreciate the sharing of forums
like these and hope to also contribute if we can do so.
Cheers - Elaine and Tony
