Our goal is to start cruising full time within 6 months of selling or leasing the house. So as you can imagine I'm counting the days until that happens.
We're starting to look seriously at boats - as the Glass Slipper - as cool as she's been for our little adventure so far, is not a serious ocean cruiser. Currently we're leaning towards a West Sail 32 or an Alberg 37. Coleen is lobbying hard for the Alberg. In fact yesterday she jumped out of bed and said, "OK, that boats in Houston, how many days will we be there , I'm going to start packing!" It took a lot of persuasion to get to to settle down and get ready for school :-) That girl really wants a new boat.
