When I had my bike shop and put up pictures of our outings, a lot of guys would say "I sure wish my wife would do that."
So I know what I'm talking about when I say you have a great wife!
Hope you salute her after each of your "adventures".
And, I hope you can get a little "instructional" with lessons learned cruising motorless. While a lot of the time situations are no brainers, others deserve "best lessons" treatment for some of us.
A good sailing blog (SLOG?) is fun and instructional to read. Keep us posted.

Chris,

There has been a fair amount of discussion about going "engineless" so I won't re-invent the wheel. Best wishes to you and your wife, will be watching your blog.

and we'll still be waiting for you off Sydney Heads ....

I reckon we all pretty much agree that Chris is as mad as a gum tree full of galahs but we need the Chris's of this world if only as a contrast to the depressingly bland that rules too much of our lives.

Best wishes to you both, we look forward to hearing of the good the bad and the joys of pure sailing.

I assume we are take it that this is not a good thing.

BTW, those big gum trees are really beautiful. Nothing like that in Canada

Aww shucks tdw... I really appreciate everything said here, thanks everybody

Just want to say that in these last couple of weeks before the 1st, I'm going to be pretty tied up trying to get everything in place for the move aboard, so I probably won't be responding a whole lot to this thread (and others) like I normally would and would like to do. I'll be checking in with S/N as usual (from my phone, just reading), but I'm probably going to be m.i.a for a bit. The deal seems to be working out that I will be down at the boat wrapping her up as much as I can, and Cate will be here taking care of wrapping up the house. The time crunch is the big thing right now, the little piddly details seem to be the most time consuming for some reason...

In what time I can scrape together, I'll probably write in the blog. I'm probably going to do the first post in the next couple of days or so. I'd like to also mention that I'm actually pretty glad I did go ahead and post here letting you guys in on our plans. I wasn't sure if I should, but I'm glad I did! I look forward to giving you guys something interesting to read once and awhile..

ccriders - I wanted to respond to what you wrote: I'm well aware how lucky I am with Cate - believe me when I tell you. Not many wives go willingly into a cockpit locker to do epoxy work or install a fastener, nor do many wives go happily into the bilge in a paper suit in 90 degrees to clean out 47 years of chud buildup (not to mention want to get rid of it all to live on a small boat and travel with me never more than 30' away..). She's awesome, and if it weren't for her I'd probably be an even bigger mess..

Thanks again everyone

Yes, you have a great pardner there! Marriage is great when you share adventures. I am also very lucky to have a wife who shared my passion for motorcycling; we did a lot of traveling together.

Fair Winds and Happy Sailing to you both!

And if you ever get to the west coast of Florida ................ you don't even need to ask.

Get some pics on that blog and a story of your boat.

BTW going south on the ICW at Cape Hatteras is one of the times that sailing is more possible.

Be interesting to here about your experiences with bridge tenders and if they make allowances for you.
