Sorry for breaking my promise not to post here but...
I sent you a private message a few days ago apologizing for some of my earlier comments. Maybe you haven't read it yet.
Anyway, after reading the above comment, I take back my apologies.

I will assume you were trying to be funny.

If not, your issues are clealy your own doing. The cruising community typically gets along very well, regardless of ones hardware. It may not be for you.

I hope you can pull it off and get away for awhile! Too many people can't seem to let go of the imagined security of jobs and housing. I know first hand; I prepared the boat (c&c Wave 26 / shoal draft) to go with my wife for a one year (open ended) cruise in the Bahamas, and when it came time to actually go, she could not let go, how sad. It took a toll on the relationship and in the end I sold the boat and swallowed the anchor, a bitter pill indeed. All this after ten years of preparing and garnering experience. God speed and Fair winds to You!!

I took my gal to the Annapolis sailboat show. We toured some beautiful Island Packet vessels. Roamed around some of those monstrous cats with four double and queen births and enough exotic wood and doodads to put a penthouse condo to shame. I then asked her, could you see yourself living on one of these beautiful vessels. Her response, "Spending some considerable time on one yes, living on her, no". Ha I had my answer, living aboard, full time cruising is not and will not be in the cards in this relationship. Now comes the hard part...

Get and read the following book " Changing Course" by Deb Cantrell. It will help all your dreams come true. We should all be so lucky. Fair winds and great adventures

Just to clarify; I'm still married, 40 yrs. on April 8, 2012. What is still difficult for her to comprehend is, that it was about being together, enjoying life, never to escape it. I believe it was "Jimmy" that said "it might come as quite a shock, but you can't really own that rock, it's just a waste of time". Sail on, sail on sailor!

Hmmm.
I've never known MINNEWASKA to be anything but nice and his original post was just commenting on LIFE in general.

Seems like the OP has a low threshold for differing points of view. Shame, b/c there are a lot of good members here who would have a lot to offer.
