I would like to add time in the PNW. Not sure how I get the boat out there. Tim's list hits a lot of my interests, too.

Re: Where would you go?

I've been to the Caribbean and the Bahamas a lot.

Where I really want to go, though, one day, is the south Pacific. I look at Bora Bora all of the time on Google Earth, and think about sailing there and anchoring there.

It's doable, I just have to decide if I want to devote the time and money for it.

the dream

The dream for now is to head south to Florida and then to the Bahamas. Maybe even hitting many on the Caribbean Islands as well. Then someday I hope to make it to the south Pacific islands as well.

Re: Where would you go?

With my current boat? Gunkholing the entire Texas coast. Poking into the bays and rivers to explore. From Sabine Pass to Port Isabel and everything in between. Would take awhile but I'm sure it would be fun. Then I'd look for my next boat and adventure. Doing the Great Loop and the Bahamas is high on the list.

Re: Where would you go?

Right now?
Current boat?
No time limit?
Head west and do a counter clockwise tour of the Great Lakes, when I get to Lake Ontario, a clockwise cruise of the lake, hitting the 1000 islands then along the south shore to the canal, down the canal, and down the east coast to the bahamas, then continue on to the dry tortugas, then over to Cuba.
