Ready to go

Hello,
My name is Joey and I'm married with a 13 y/o son. I have been a Police Officer for the past 16 years and completely burned out. My wife and I are headed to Galveston Tx Oct. 30 to take a sailing course. Hopefully in the next few months we will find a boat that is right for us and become live aboards. We want to start off traveling the Gulf Intracoastal waterway from Texas to florida, then maybe around the Keys.
We used to take a cruise every year and decided that we loved being on the water. Maybe we can sail for a couple of years and if we get tired of it, we can always come back home. My Mom will be living in our house so it will be taken care of. I am very excited my wife wants to do this as much as me, and cant wait to start sailing.

Joey

Welcome Aboard Brother. I retired from police work in July, after 22 years. People kept asking me what I would do in retirement. I told them "Sailing, cooking, and gardening." They thought I was kidding. I'm not starting cruising yet because my wife is still working. But I have the boat already. See you on the water.

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
