Phase 1 of escape plan
Hello every one...I'm an attorney born on the shore of Lake Erie....wait untill boooos die down..Was that Erie or attorney boos?..ok... anyway I am looking for my first real live aboard cruiser. Working my way thru the data to find a compromise between let's say a Morgan O/I and a Valiant 40 also really like the Tartan 37 but the size worries me for extended live aboard. I will single hand her and live aboard full time begining 2010 and in the mean time will ready her and myself for the first real taste of freedom. Plan to sail the Great Lakes first...then south to FL Suncoast where I plan to make my home port. To the Carribean, St. Lucia to connect with friends and find a Carribean home port before deciding where to go next.
My dilema is that my biggest crossing would likely be Hawaii and most sailing would be toward coastal/gunkhole type..keel issues abound.....suggestions are welcome...Blue Skies and Blue water everyone....EBdreamn
