Took the Plunge

My wife and I are in our early 30's and have been talking about taking a sabbatical for quite sometime and have finally committed. We sold our much loved Pearson 303 in Sausalito and bought a Lagoon 400 in Fort Lauderdale, quite the change. Over the next 10 months we'll be selling off a lot of things getting the house ready to rent and preparing for long term cruising. We have lots to learn and will be looking to the community for insight. I've already learned a lot through lurking over the past number of years.
