This blog starts in mid-October 2013 as Maggie and I prepare our 38-ft sailboat, Rainy Days, for our retirement, cruising the Bahamas during future winters. We plan to rent our house in Annapolis, Maryland year-by-year as we cruise and we will be coming back to Annapolis (or Maine) each summer (during hurricane season) and live on our sailboat in a marina. We are not new to living aboard--I lived aboard s/v Rainy Days alone for 10 years before meeting Maggie and shortly thereafter we bought our house in Annapolis.
A boat is a very small platform to live within. Fortunately, living on a sailboat also involves living out of doors in good weather. We will be sailing into warmer weather as we head south.
