Hello from the Chesapeake

Hello all!!

We have actually been members of this forum for a number of years, refer to it often, and have posted a couple of times, but have never properly introduced ourselves.

I'm Becky and my more or less silent (as far as the internet goes) partner is Lance. We currently live in Maryland and are between sailboats.

We have been sailing and rebuilding old boats, occasionally living aboard, for the past 30 years. My husband is retired Navy and taught sailing for several years at the Naval Academy. We have owned a wide variety of sailboats (and a couple of stinkpots along the way too) which has given us a lot of opportunity to evaluate what we do and do not like and form our wants/needs list for our final cruising boat.

Our dream to retire someday and go cruising started about that long ago also. The plan has gotten derailed a couple of times for one reason or another. We had our (almost) ideal boat a couple of years back, and had lovingly restored and refit it to prepare for eventual cruising, but due to a misdiagnosed illness (mine) that we thought had put an end to sailing for me, we sold it. (I hate it when that happens.....)

Now we are only a few short years away from the magic date and in the planning/preparation stage again, including the search for a new boat. Knowing us, it will also need refurbishing and refitting. That's just the way we do things. So we need to get to it.

I'm always happy to chat about almost anything, but as most people who are seeing the dream on the horizon, I am most interested in articles and information from those who are out there and can give insight as to what the cruising climate really is now. I imagine the cruising world of the Hiscocks and Roths probably doesn't exist anymore.

It will be very nice to get to know all of you.

Re: Hello from the Chesapeake

"Welcome" seems odd considering you've been lurking for seven years. But, Welcome!
