i would like to say to you go......
i am a 56 year old trampsailor, as the name implies, left the corp. world 19 yrs ago with a wife and still 3 children at home. my only regret, we did not do it when we started sailing, (we started in our early teens).
the boat doesn''t have to be a million dollar luxury liner, all she has to be is sea worthy. you don''t need all the fancy gizmos, all you need is the dream, and a willingness to work, it was the best thing we could have done for ourselves and our kid, (note, no money, no fortune, just a solid wooden boat and a desire to be free)
