"Every minute you spend wishing you did something is a minute you spend not doing it."
Tired of the status quo, Chris and Melody, along with their Dutch Shepherd, Jet, sold their Nashville home and almost everything they owned to move onto a 35-foot sailboat and go cruising.
This is the story of a leap of faith -- from making the decision, finding the right boat, downsizing and selling everything, and finally telling friends, family, and bosses.
Once on board, they discovered that their greatest triumphs often came from their greatest challenges. Champagne wishes and caviar dreams soon fell prey to their bologna sandwich and Miller High Life budget. Boat breakdowns, tropical storms, and over-extended bank accounts brought them face-to-face with the reality that things don't always go as planned. But sometimes... that's the best plan.
Light-hearted, humorous, and sometimes sad, this story will draw you in you with its unique look at life on a sailboat and the emotions that come with it.
If you've ever wanted to sell it all, buy a boat, and sail away, this is a book you'll want to read.
What Readers Are Saying
"I loved this book. What I liked best was the reassurance that the long-term liveaboard lifestyle can be done without millions of dollars in the bank. If you've got the itch, then this book is for you."
"This is about more than just sailing; it's about finding the thing that makes your heart beat. It's about knowing that when you reach the end of this thing we call life, there won't be as many "what if's" as there will be "I am so glad we did's.""
"Chris writes likes he is sitting across the table from you. You believe all he says because he sounds like a long time friend. And he writes from years of hands on experience. Absolutely delightful."
"I wish this book had been available when I was contemplating whether or not to live my own dream. I might have 'lifted anchor' much earlier than I did."
"I expected this book about moving onto a sailboat to be inspiring, and it definitely was, but it was also a surprisingly funny, page-turning read from start to finish. I picked it up one night on a whim, and ended up reading it cover to cover in one sitting."
"My wife and I have dreamt of living on our boat for years but never figured out how to do it. Chris explained it perfected in this boat, "just untie your lines." Thank you so much for sharing your experience with the rest of the dreamers. I am sure you provided motivation to many to go."
