    In a pinch, I'd get rid of the job and head west into the sunset ... Or
    so I like to dream.
    I have a 50' old classic offshore wooden trawler, designed by Arthur
    Defever in the mid-1960s.  In fact, he owned my boat for 2 years until
    he built a new boat for himself.  The little ship is a very comfortable
    ocean crosser, including a traditional saloon with fireplace, engine
    telegraphs, and other nice touches not found on today's boats.
    I keep her in Santa Barbara, CA and cruise primarily among the offshore
    islands around here.  Although I have plans to head down to Cabos San
    Lucas this spring.  And I too have my eye on that once in a lifetime
    dream of the circumnavigation.

    Save a few emails I think I qualify as a lurker aswell. I own a Canadian
    built Reliance 40'. She is a impressive and massive long keeler I enjoy
    sailing immensely.  I usually sail around the 'Ijsselmeer' (The
    Netherlands) and the 'Waddenzee', a tricky estuarie to the north of
    holland. And yes, I am a blue water wanna-be aswell. I hope to do some
    serious sailing in the future. What other point is there in owning a
    money-drain. But like so many others I have not yet given up job,
    friends and the prospect of children. Allthough all the previous mix
    well with long distance cruising except perhaps a job.
