This is for those that wonder, for the TF members, and for the wannabees. What kind of boat do we really need for full time cruising?
Some will claim that you need a million dollar plus passagemaker. Some will claim you could do it in a runabout.
Here's a blog I stumbled upon today. A simple couple with a dream. The boat is nothing extraordinary. It's actually typical of the boats that many TF members have. I would dare say it is just an average boat in the overall boat scheme of things. The boat is a 44' Marine Trader Sundeck model.
This couple is currently in Mexico, having started their retirement adventure in Northern California. They are living the dream, and appear to be having the time of their lives.
A simple couple. A simple boat. A simple dream.
