Having been through something similar myself, I can understand your need to move. However, your first post was rather skimpy on details and it sounded like she had just taken ill and was in Texas, rather than it being a more serious chronic issue and that she had moved back to Texas. Context changes a lot.

My Wife has already went home to TX and we miss each other alot and cannot really afford to hire a Capt. But the Beneteau First is in excellent condition and made the trip here and can make the trip back. Of course I will pay some expenses, and if crew needs some fun time (diving, sight seeing, please can we stop here or stop their) than I will accomodate. This is a very dissapointing time for me and I would appreciate it if you didn,t make this into some sick joke as to how I am trying to screw someone for my own selfishness and arrogance.
I wish you the best of luck in finding crew. I would highly recommend you look at sailopo.com for crew. It would help if you said what your expected departure date and arrival dates were.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Highly recommends Derrick.
Don't despair, keep looking for good crew. I found them here.
Prayers for your wife.
Peace, John

I have a crew and it looks like it will be a win, win situation for all. Thanks for some of the kind words and prayers.

Quality of Life

Good for you John! Go for the most and best you can together. Good sailing, beautifle sunsets, peace and all the best to you both.

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.

I would do it in a minute, but I'm not skilled enough yet. I sure hope you have a great crew, and your wife is doing well.
