A 5yr. plan to a cruising retirement

My wife and I are still learning to sail. We bought our first boat (Hunter 240) last year and have been sailing it at the lake. I took the ASA basic keel and coastal cruising course and have many others to take. We are planning to retire in 5yrs. I''m 57 now. We will have more sailing experience by then and hopefully know what kind of boat we need for what we want to do. We mainly want to cruise along the coastal area of Florida (Keys), Bahamas, etc..with occasional offshore passages. We plan to charter some boats before we make a
decision on a purchase. We would like to liveaboard for 2-4 mths. out of the year. We have read everything we can get our hands on, researched a few boats and came up with the Morgan 41 OI as the ideal boat for us. If anyone has experiences/information they would like to share with us, please e-mail us at ernscarjo@aol.com Thank you...Ernie & Jo.
