Sailors Choice               All About Cruising

Maybe "next year….."  (This should not be your cruising mantra!) 
So, bunky, you keep tellin' the little lady that come "next November the boat will be provisioned, the bills paid, and your passports in order" so she better do something about that pesky cat, cause he ain't goin".....is that what you do? Is the cat still around, does the boat have more beer than hardtack aboard, is AARP sendin' you applications?

 

A lot of us dream of sailing the seas, entering exotic ports and enjoying the company of the world.  We have found a whole flotilla that have actually made their dreams come true.
