It sounds like you have a plan, and I really hope you get to where you want it to take you.

Venilia is a Roberts design of 57 ft on deck, or a little over 65 ft overall. She’s a big girl and quite daunting to be in charge of for novice sailors like us. The layout is 3 cabins with a queen bunk in the master, 2 bunks in the midships cabin and 4 bunks in the fo’c’s’le. Have a look here, it describes her in quite good detail: http://venilia.com.au/s-v-venilia/

Awesome guys just found your page and will be following now. We are a family of 5 living in Alberta Canada so not close to the ocean yet. We share your dream of buying an anwhere boat and making the change. We are currently renovating two houses to sell one to buy the boat and rent one to help fund the travels.

Each day you are a step closer to your dream. It took us 3 years and a reasonably healthy budget before we untied the dock lines at Port Bouvard and took off on our cruising adventure.

Just plug in a new display. The engine monitoring I discussed here is a great example of this. This modularity means we can build our perfect system […]

They are so practical, down to earth and realistic. I met Sheree through St John and slowly began to learn of your families goals. It’s so exciting to actually see a family with a direction in life not controlled by fancy marketing or media hype as many of us are in current times. As far as educating your children, they will become pillars of our world. The education Sheree and yourself provide them will go well beyond what they could ever expect to receive in a regular classroom. I know how focused and driven Sheree is and she would never let it be any other way. Look forward to future blog posts.
Forward into life.
Roy

La peur de l’inconnu c’est un processus normal pout assurer une certaine securite. Il faut y aller a “petit pas”, le faire de maniere progressive, “peu a peu”, jusqu’a etre pret a realiser tes reves, osez faire de nouvelles choses et etre fier de toi.
