Having met Ms. Xort I can confirm Xort is living the dream, the Ms. wants a boat just as much as he does.

I'm very lucky. I think what clinched the deal with my love was just after we met. She asked where I saw myself in 5 years. My reply was living on a sailboat, spending the summer in New England and wintering in the Keys or the islands; I'll stop and work for 3 or 4 months a year. Her instant reply was "Can I come."

She has only sailed a few times so far, but has loved it. Working on the boat is more like 80/20. I really should do more . So far she takes the helm and I take care of the sails. She is able, willing, and anxious to learn more.

We are in the process of remodeling my house to either rent or sell. It's a duplex and I've kept the other half rented for years without problem, so it will work. I'm an RN and she is an entrepreneur with skills including chef and graphic design. Very portable and workable skills for traveling.

On top of all of this she is really hot. She is the whole package with brains, beauty, and likes to sail. She is definitely in. Jealous?

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.
