With a boat you get to go where you want, plus if you don't like where you're at you can move.

Re: Where should we retire with our boat?

Faced with same issue. Good advice has already been given. Go cruising.stop off at the places that intrigue you. Stop if you think you found the spot. Everyone is different and things change. May want to snow bird a while to see if you really want to do this.

That's what I did when I was cruising. I stayed in a place until I woke up one day, and said, "I'm tired of this place."

Re: Where should we retire with our boat?

When on the boat after a couple of months, I can't wait to get home. When at home for a couple of months, can't wait to get out sailing again. One thing to consider when thinking about selling the land-based quarters and moving aboard full-time is whether you really want to be on a boat full-time. If you had a boat in the perfect place tied to a dock behind your house, would you be living in the boat? I doubt it.

Curious as to what style of piano you play... classical or contemporary music?

Have any music recorded we could enjoy anywhere?
I hadn't considered a keyboard...that could work! I'm classically trained, but I like a lot of different styles of music. I lean toward the romantic styles. I only play for me because i don't play all that well - I just really enjoy it. No recordings (which is a good thing!).

We're planning to visit Savannah sometime soon to scope it out and hope to hear you perform at the restaurant you suggested.

Re: Where should we retire with our boat?

We're in the process of buying a place in Summerville, Sc. It's about a half hour from any of the marinas in Charleston and about 45 min to the beach. We won't be retiring for another 5 or 6 years, and are planning on renting the place out until then. Real estate prices are still pretty reasonable, but are on their way up, so we thought we'd take advantage of the current pricing and interst rates. If we change our mind later (and I doubt it after this winter), we can always sell it and buy elsewhere.

Yes... a keyboard will work and it's what I have here with me, I practice every chance I get... great that you love the romantics and so do I... my wife loves it when I play (she plays the violin so we play together)...

Would love to play for you and your significant other... I travel quite a bit and so we'll have to choose a date I'm home... but feel free to know the Savannah area as we have plenty of music bars/pubs, nightly music venues with local musicians... City Market is where you'd want to get out at night and enjoy the music scene... many of my musician friends play nightly.

Here is something I just recorded this morning, something I love playing as it gets my hands across the entire keyboard almost.

Re: Where should we retire with our boat?

I like the sailing in the Northeast from the Chesapeake to Maine ( though, I'm sure I'd like the PNW were I on the other coast)

Instead of moving the boat south in winter and back (been there done that once). I've been thinking of selling the house and living and cruising aboard through the northern season, perhaps ending the season somewhere on the Chesapeake bay. Then renting somewhere warm for 4 or 5 months. to get out of the northern winter. That would give me the flexibility of changing scenery..until I decided where the next land purchase would be. A kayak could travel with me to fish and explore from.
