Re: Where should we retire with our boat?

No one has mentioned the Texas coast. Anyone have any idea about this area for sailboats? I know there is a lot of fishing and motor boats.

It's exactly 1.6354

I too would vote Oxnard before LA but in truth there's not a lot of destination type sailing

When I moved there from the PNW I was AMAZED that there are no next to zero restaurants with a dinghy dock etc in MDR Newport or Oxnard are better but in all honesty I'm not sure anywhere N of Oxnard's weather is That much better than Seattle's


And compared to Michigan the PNW weather is actually 'mild'
With a nearly infinite cruising ground

Take a month to go to Arizona or Mexico in the winter and it'd be a pretty good retirement plan I think

I'm fixing up a boat for my retirement and want to live in 90 degree days all day long but I haven't trucked the boat to Texas or San Diego etc because the first place I want to explore is right here

Mountains and the like are AMAZING and it takes a few years for the winter rain to bog you down (me anyway)

So there are caveats but I think PNW has a lot going on and coming from snow and ice I think you'd find it really nice here
