Thanks for the support. Jane is committed to another year and a half of work (at least) to complete her current term of office. I hope that cruising with her will convince her to retire sooner than later.

I can tell you something I hope you already know.... When you start doing it full time...you will wonder what the hell took you so long!
Hope you can join us soon!

Thank you all for your kindness. It was an honor and an education to serve. The boat truly isn't ready, she needs much upgrading and maintenance. But I enjoy every minute I spend aboard. I'm no perfectionist, I already sailed her home 1100 miles. My real limit is Jane's career, she's not ready to retire yet. I will cruise a couple of weeks this year. See you out there, or in some little port.

Retirement - It's all you expected and more. Glad you could join the party.
Now - just go sailing!
