Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

Don't mean to bash on you NOB but sea kayaking and white water kayaking are completely different worlds. Also, I want warmth not the drizzly chilly weather of the northwest. And California been...

Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

I know the Pacific is very very big to say the least but is nobody concerned about the radiation from Fukushima? Maybe I'm misinformed or paranoid? But, I wanna be able to eat the fish I catch. I'm...

Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

I don't think I mentioned that I was a recent college grad? Just that I have a BA. I did mention that I've been a photojournalist for the last 14 years. So, that would put me in my mid to late 30's...

Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

TY Zed,
I should point out that I not only want to liveaboard but I also want to do a lot of sailing. Not long trips at first, maybe just some gunkholing or getting out for evening sails after work...

Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

Sal, I can't say that I'm a natural born sailor but the first time I sailed 3 years ago my imagination ran wild with the thought of making a long passage and exploring distant lands. Ever since that...

Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

James, I do thank you for your perspective.

Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

At the moment I'm impartial to Emu's as I've never met one.

Thank you Bidgo for the boat suggestions. I'd like to go a bit cheaper though. Yes, I know I may have to settle for something a little...

Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

Jameswilson, sorry to mock you but you sound like my sister asking me for a five year plan.

Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

I will do my best White.
And Andrew, I know I know, the last thing I want right now is to fall in love. Lol, that would suck up my money and squish my soul. It's happened to better men than me.

Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

Thanks Andrew,
I like option 2. :) There's a part of me that wants to find a boat that is structurally in tact but needs some bright work or what not. Things seem to feel more your own when you can...

Re: Broken rib help for new sailor

The board you see above the rib is the foot end of the bunk on the right (port?) side and is the 4th rib from the stern if I remember correctly. Next time I'm at the boat I will remove this board and...

Re: Broken rib help for new sailor

I took the boat to storage for the winter in lower elevation (about an hour away) so I can't examine it now to try and determine what the rib is made of. I'll probably be seeing her again in a few...
