Still dreaming

I guess I am one more in the numbers of wanting to sail away into retirement. The location starts in Texas Gulf Coast. The boat is narrowed to an Allied Mistres, Island Trader, or a Morgan OI 41. I like the idea of a ketch rig for height and redundancy. The plan is to sell a comercial building/loft apt. Use that to buy and rig a 35 to 45 ft boat and streach the rest for 2 to 3 years of adventure. One problem...The wife is about to stroke out on the idea of quitting work and becoming "homeless". I don't think the pretty sunsets will calm her on this. Oh well, Still Dreaming
