We sailed a good portion of every day and anchored in a different spot each evening. All of our meals were prepared on the on the boat so the immersion was complete and most days were topped off with evening walks on the beach or exploring nearby townships. There is so much more to learn but we are anxious and committed to taking the leap. I’m really looking forward to the boat search and will start looking now with a goal of owning in just over a year. Looks like we are going to need a lot more help and advice.
Ha! told ya so!
Good news on the outcome... you are now sliding down the fall line, gaining speed as you go. No doubt that you will reach the bottom unscathed and with big smiles on your faces.
Enjoy the boat search, and remember that some brokers lie and all POs seem to forget deferred maintenance
and grounding incidents when they tell you about their boats!
Good luck, and tell us about the search as you progress.
