I am taking off of school again after december to really get to work, I have actually considered buying a different boat that is closer to being seaworthy but we will see what happens either way hopefully by spring I will be living aboard and really begginning preperations. It has taken much longer then expected to get everything on track but I am still working towards it and hopefully getting closer. Luckily I live by my uncle who has a sailboat so I still get a fair amount of time out on the water. I'll try not to disapear for so long without an update next time, might try making a website/blog
LOD,

On occasion, we have had inquiries from other young sailors in similar situations with similar aspirations, and quite a few of us have pointed them to this thread as an example of what can be accomplished. It's helpful that you've come back with an update -- thanks for being frank about the status of your project/endeavor.

If you have time, I'm sure a lot of folks would be curious to hear more details about your progress, in particular the unanticipated challenges you've encountered. In other words, what would you do differently today knowing what you know? Different boat, stay in school, quit school, etc?

Very good to hear from you and thanks for the update! Keep us posted.
