I lived in Kansas City, MO - working for Ford Motor Company at the Kansas City Assembly Plant for 27 years as an Inspector and a Statical Process Control Analyst. My kids all pretty much grew up in that area. When I retired, I sold my home, drove to San Diego, bought a boat and lived on it for about 2 years. Then lived with my sister, in Nashville, TN; who wasn't well (and eventually passed from Lung Cancer). I began looking for my next boat (home) and found it on the Third Coast in Texas, where I am now. My home is a 37 ft, Irwin, Center Cockpit sail boat whose name is Smiles II Go. 2012 update: I am currently almost done with the boat refit - going on 6 years in the process - and ready to move into my new docaminium slip at Portofino in late September to begin the 'rest of my life aboard'. Very exciting.
