Hi everyone, We've made the commitment to living aboard. We found our new home in New Zealand and it is being delivered to Honolulu as I write. We pick her up there in August and sail back to San Diego. There's much to do (mostly DIY) before we head out and eventually east in early 2010. I've been reading up full time and poring through Sailnet for the last 12 months. Great stuff - thanks for all the fantastic contributions! The dream is coming true and we'll keep everyone posted.
