Aspiring sailor and liveaboard


We have been contemplating about buying a boat for living aboard with our 3 year old son. We are convinced that we are going to do this and do it soon (hopefully May'11). We are also making a longer term plan of doing a year long pacific cruise (we live in SF bay area). This dream has already injected so much energy and excitement to our life. Whether or not finances will agree to that as soon as we would like is another story.

Our dream boat is a solidly built, 40'-45' center cockpit. We have a few candidates in mind which I will seek your valuable opinions for soon. Oh by the way, we have absolutely no sailing experience ourselves other than having a small (few hours) trip with our friend.

This board has just been a wonderful inspiration and a source for information/advice. Looking forward to become a boat owner and share my experiences here.
