Good plan, but do you know what happened to Ronnie? He abandoned his boat 8 days into the trip. He had no skills, or knowledge, and was overwhelmed by a small storm. Get some skills, and knowledge before you go. A few with neither make it, but most fail, and lose everything. That typed.....BEST WISHES in making it a successful trip!!!!!!!!.........i2f

See you out there Cliff! I sold out when I was 47, don't regret a single moment of it.

Excellent progress and especially the plan to take courses.

My boat neighbor is going from Montauk to the Virgin Islands in October, on his Catalina 39 (38?). I am a little envious as he talks about getting the boat ready for the trip. He bought the boat in Georgia and sailed the Bahamas before bringing her up north. I'm a few years away, maybe 12 or so.

Good luck with the trip. (And this site is an excellent place to ask questions.)
