I'd love to live on one someday, though that's a loooong way off and I need to learn a lot about sailing and having the money to maintain a boat that size. I really like the steel ketches though. That's what I'd want for ocean crossing. Easy to repair, feel a bit safer in case you do hit something (like coral). They're slow, but I'm ok with that.
I'd love to sail to Key West someday. We're looking into getting a pocket sailboat like a Montgomery 15 in teh next couple fo years for sailing on teh lake. I'm hoping ot take classes next year or get my dad to teach me to sail. smile
