Researching Cruising to see if I can leave it all behind and go away...
I have been great friends with a sailor for 10 years. I have always loved offshore fishing and being on boats. When I met Mark, it was my first taste of sailing. We have taken some small day trips, but nothing massive. He has sailed across the Gulf of Mexico and along the US coast and has quite a bit of sailing experience.
We are seriously talking about going cruising for a year - possibly more if we enjoy it in about 3 -4 years after prepping. He has a Tayana 37 which is out having bottom work done right now.
I would appreciate any suggestions on reading material, websites, or any input about the cruising life. If things go the way that we plan, we would both quit our jobs and leave everything behind. If the cruising doesn't work out, then I will have to look for another job and find another place to live, etc., etc., etc. I have real concerns, but I am also very excited at the thought.
