I've sailed most of my adult life and now have time, health and freedom to do some serious cruising again. I'd love to find a lovely first mate but if not, I single handed for my last 1.5 year cruise to the Caribbean.
I'm now in the process of completing the purchase of a 1998 Celestial Raised Saloon Amphitrite which I'll take possession of in Puerto Rico in April. If survey a sea trial go well we should close before the end of March and I should be aboard and floating about in the BVI in April.
My plan is to make this an extended cruise. Maybe a couple years in the Caribbean and the U.S. eastern seaboard maybe up as far as Quebec City and then across to the Med and who knows how long I might stay there...so much to see.
Still looking for that first mate so, if you're a single female and would like to cruise for a week or two or a year or two let me know and we'll see what we can work out.

I've been across the Atlantic and through the Bahamas and the Caribbean down to Trinidad
Complete the purchase of a 1998 Celestial 50 Raised Saloon by the end of March. and then be ready to push off by the beginning of April. I plan an extended cruise that could easily last for several years....until it isn't fun anymore.

New to the group, going through the posts, I have come upon this thread. I was considering tinting my windows of my Beneteau 43 with a darker tint, but I really like your idea. So I will copy with…"
