Re: Where are the younger people?
I'm more glad everyday that I chose seattle over Florida. The heat! I can't sleep in the heat.
Nah bflorida has better cruising in a way. It's just that its the rest of the year. But still glad I'm here
I know it gets cramped. Believe me I feel it but its not bad. I don't think I even want a boat over 30 feet. Too much maintenance. My friend has a ranger 33. Great boat. Lots more room than mine, but I sail way more. It's so easy to get everything put up and taken down. And if I here one more story about inboard engine problems I don't think I'll ever be able to get one.
I'm hooked. For me this is just the beginning. I will do this on and off for life. I'm not going to be a diehard live aboard. But a lifelong cruiser. It's the best way to live for me. Life is better and easier. I can live anywhere anyone would want to live and for less. San Diego? 1 million+ for an ocean view and fighting traffic or swinging on a mooring ball with 360 degree ocean views and no traffic. No bad neighbors. No trash cans and kitchen remodeling. No flat screen tvs to rot my brain.
