More fun than before. “Boat life” is still hard but Guadeloupe is more interesting than Antigua. We met some YouTubers we like and she gave them a very detailed survey of Antigua and where to go to save money. We rented a car this week with some boat buddies and are going inland.How is the spouse's mindset & experience been - having fun on the boat?
When Beth went home, I tended to do short tricky singlehanded day sails (so fun but not too tiring) always to fully protected anchorages - when solo I did not want to have to worry at night when the 2am squalls came thru. I saved all the good 'see places and do stuff ashore' for when beth was on board.
To @accnick ’s point I’m a 100hr wonder at this point when it comes to single handing - just confident to get myself into trouble. I also feel safer offshore where there is less to hit. Most of the anchorages here are just ok, not super secure. I wanted to do some of the less comfortable trips while the spousal unit was away.
