Re: Just beginning to shop around... would love feedback/ideas...
I am psyched for you and can't wait to do this myself. My wife and I are moving back to Florida and looking for a boat to sail and eventually sail away on. We are novices so we have a few years to learn before any potential live aboard situation, plus we have a 1 yr old so until he is a bit older we will take more lessons and improve our safety while having fun. At any rate, I read all these threads and loved the update. Good luck to you and please update on your trials both for our curiosity on your success and b/c others following in your steps will read and learn! Good luck!
