With the short season (6 Months if lucky) and the 7-4:30 hours we take what we can get. Not as many days as we would like, but we don't miss any weekends on board.

Paloma is in Puerto Isabella and is the water yeararound and sailing is great all 12 months, but we're in Fort Worth (aka Cowtown), 570 miles north, so it's tough to get to the boat more that a long weekend ever month or so.

Slipped in Bahia Marina, easy access to Corpus Christi Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

Im not excited about it but Im not ashamed to be it the less then 50 class...I paid cash for it and money dosent grow on trees so I must be doing something with my time...

You could have added an under 25 category and I might be in that too...


I will most likely be busy as usual this summer and fall as thats my time to make hay.......Why cant you all build your houses and roads in the winter and give me the summer off... ....but such is the life I chose...So I live with it
