captbillc,
We're all under the impression that it will be solar powered and driven by GPS guided computer. Even money says he never makes it past the Carolina border. (g)

Cam,

The seas are going to be quite a bit emptier without your Camaraderie on them.

Godspeed on your new endeavors!

Awesome story Cam.

If you're looking for a good RV deal I got a 35' fleetwood up for sale . CHEAP. Just needs a little TLC

T37S-

Camaraderie is still going to be on the seas... just without Cam in it... which might be a good thing.

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.

All right...thanks to all the well wishers and BITE ME to all the AFOC's!!
A couple of points:
1. I'm not leaving here.
2. I am PLANNING to RV in the future but will wait a while to see how this economy goes before making another big ticket investment. BLT2 will be providing advice and counsel when I am ready.
3. I have the use of a beautiful little Columbia21 daysailer here so can still get out and putz around when I am not performing daring rescues with SeaTow
4. Once again...BITE ME!!

To answer a couple of the more serious questions. Our prior Camaraderie was a 44' Hirsch/Irwin center cockpit that was a great coastal/Bahamas live aboard boat but really not designed for blue water. She is presently owned by another sailnet member who is not a frequent poster.

No...I never sailed again with Jay...but I understand he has his own S2 on the Chesapeake and enjoys sailing her with appropriate precautions medication wise!

Yes...we motorsailed on much of that trip as the wind was on our nose till we made the turn at the Chespeake and we needed to make time. It is a corallary to Murphy's Law that whenever you need to get somewhere...the wind is on your nose. Ask Labatt right now...he will confirm!

We cruised for 6 years full time and it was me rather than the admiral who wanted to get off the boat and move back ashore. I could probably start a thread on this but in short, living aboard is both wonderful and hard. It is wonderful to sail, to see neat new places, to hang with fellow cruisers, to challenge oneself and to learn ones capabilities and to get out of the rat race and live ones dream. It is hard to give up all shoreside ameneties...hot water, long showers, 500 channels of cable and broadband internet, toilets you don't have to pump, fast food and a hundred other small things. It is hard to make the trek north to south every year and back to avoid hurricane season and attend to the navigation and the costs and the breakdowns and constant maintenance and the worry that your home and everything you own could be on the rocks in a storm or worse as the wind howls through the rigging.

At first...all the GOOD stuff is way more important than all the bad stuff...but after a while I lost the enthusiasm to do the same things again and again and after Ivan I lost my enthusiasm for crossing an ocean. Then we rediscovered this wonderful place and my enthusiasm for a new lifestyle led me to the decision to stay and move ashore and the dream of RV'ing and seeing the land side of this country and Canada for a chunk of each year while retaining a home base in a place I love. I intend to keep day sailing until we get tired of "land sailing" and then get something bigger and more suitable for exploring these shoal waters. For the next six months or so though...I think I am just gonna stay put and see how things shake out.

I ain't going nowhere while the Portagee is still a threat to this country and our American way of life!

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

congrats Cam

I hope I don't get cold feet for cruising too fast...I'm shooting for 10 years on a much smaller boat than yours.

Good luck on your further adventures

Are you going to continue to sell crack cocaine to children to support your lavish lifestyle, or are you going to go into another line of work? Just wonderin'.
