Hi Wildheart. Just found this part of the site and am very impressed with the strings here. I am a single (after 18 years of marriage) liveaboard on the Chesapeake Bay. I sold my house, my stuff, got a kitten and bought a Taswell 43. I absolutely love the lifestyle. Winters in the North are pretty awful though. Shoveling snow off my deck is not my idea of fun but it will be spring soon and I will forget the dark days. I''m learning everyday and would enjoy sharing stories, tips whatever. My intent is to cruise the Caribbean and Bahamas full time. If the stock market would just comply! Drop me a line if you can.
