Excellent post, thank you for sharing with everyone on TF. You are were we wish to be "able to retire" and made the decision to enjoy life aboard a boat. You didn't wait any longer, you have begun the best of dreaming - the journey. Best of luck and enjoy life.
Possibly someday in the future we will see you on the water
