Hello

Hello,

New to sailing and sailboats.
It's been a lifelong dream of my DH to live aboard and travel the world. We moved aboard late this summer, and left Maine Oct 3rd. Wow it was cold.

We have many things to figure out, and now that we are in Florida, we can slow down more to do so. I've been lurking a bit, trying to learn more. Figure it's about time I start participating here!

Re: Hello

Thank you!

Ooh, the trip down. I may need more time before being able to write about that more positively!
We are currently in St Augustine, resting, waiting for parts, and getting more comfortable.

Re: Hello

Separating the posts to get up to 10...


I'm not the computer person - DH is, so I will try to get newer pics up.

Re: Hello

When we got to VA, I mentioned that I didn't want to take the boat further north ever again. Then Beaufort NC said the same thing. Now in St Augustine (what a great city with much history) I tried again. But we certainly want to see Charleston and Savannah.....
