We are already working to schedule two different week training/charter events. When we decide to do something, we do it like snails....very slow and very thorough. We have lived on a boat in short stints and will live full time once our two kids graduate high school. We have decided on Galveston in Texas as they seem to be very friendly to live aboards. My territory includes TX as well so I will not even have to change careers. We want to do this right which is why we are starting and planning now. At the EARLIEST we will be selling out 340 and looking to move to a sailboat is 2018. I know it may seem 'early' to try and start looking, but we really want to do our research and know what we are getting into. ..... THAT said, does anyone know anythign at Catana Cats? I found this one and the layout looks nice. We could add a washer dryer I am sure, but any thoughts? I have read they are good for blue water sailing? yes, no, maybe?
