Thanks you for your service. I hope hte medial issues are able to be cleared up. As a fellow engineer, I can tell you that that career path is a good one. I'm an electrical/computer engineer, which is harder than mechanical engineering (inside joke which you'll appreciate later), but mechanical engineering is a fine choice.
I have a wife and two kids. A family doesn't necessarily preclude you from getting out on the water, you just have to make sure that you do it in a way that makes the most sense for all of you. For some here, that means buying a 14-18' "dinghy" sailboat from Craigslist for $100 and towing it to the local lake/river when they feel like cutting loose. For others, it's a brand-new, 40+ footer with all the bells and whistles. Donna's suggestion of a sailing club is also a great idea, because you can start to get a sense of whether you actually LIKE sailing before committing a lot of money to the cause.
Regardless of how you do it, or when, welcome aboard!
