I'm new here, but I'm not new to the forum and many of its posts. Most of my friends say I'm/we're (wife included) too old to be sailing and living on a sailboat. What do they know? They have not experienced the freedom and the pure joy of living in one's own private luxury cocoon that can be moved to whatever pleasurable location one chooses. We've just spent one year on shore in a beautiful apartment that we are now giving up to live on an Islander Freeport 38C that we are in the process of purchasing. Moving aboard again will be a difficult and complex task, but we're up for it and as excited as two people two generations younger would be. It also is a real pleasure to be on board with the SailNet Community.
