auto correct strikes again. Well yeah I travel by sail boat now but On the eastern seaboard I can use the inter coastal that's basically saltwater inland routes by water thatconect the coastal states in the was North to south so I won't be "at sea" all the time

Show me your ways.....

I am seriously considering going through the same process of land to sea, thanks to your prior posts. I've heard it is a shit ton of work and money to keep a boat operational, however.

That's awesome! I just sold my boat. Was too much to single hand. It was a 79' Hunter 37C. A friend of mine is a delivery skipper so when I get the urge to sail I just crew with him now. I lived on mine for a while, but it got old... and expensive quick.
