Hello all...have been lurking about for awhile, thought it was time to join, am planning to retire in one year and start cruising. Have really enjoyed, and learned from this forum. There is a wealth of knowledge here, and so I hope can contribute in some way in the future. We are planning to sell our dirt home, buy a sea kindly cruising trawler in Florida, and go from there. Lots to learn, looking forward to it!
