Please tell me it is worth it???

We felt the same way you do. Last June we sold our home of 15 years. Keep a budget. Which I hate doing. My husband loves it. We spent about 6 years walking docks, going to boat shows and reading about all types of boats. In January we bought a 42 ft center cockpit. It needs some repairs but we love it. Our daughter will be 16 and in 10th grade when we leave in January. We have looked into home schooling her, haven''t decided what program to use. It has been a great change for all of us. I am a potter, so the question I''m asked is ''How are you going to get a wheel and kiln on board?''
As we know, life is about choices, the idea of crusing and exploring feels wonderful to me. Our daughter wants experence this.
Sure they will miss some of the sports, drama, etc. I feel what they will learn will out weigh these things.
Good luck w/ your decision.
