i`m not but that quote was in regard to the rest of his life , $120k ant going to last forever no matter how frugal you are even if you never go to restaurants (I personally hate also) with a good interest rate I dont see i lasting any ware near 10 years, boat maintenance would suck it up alone.

and health insurance is a wast but if I lost the boat I would never get another so for ME it the right thing (no im not trying to start a fight)

May there always be water under your boat,

Cause I could foresee a time where visa might not be there, my not work, the bank is out of buissness, or something like that.

Cash, gold coin, some loose diamonds, or trade goods will go a long way in that situation.
And with the world kinda going to hell right now, I would take the chance.

Just my opinion of course. But it has happend before, it will happen again.

The way the thread was going in the way of making/saving a buck, I thoughty I would offer some Nigrien advice
Looks like the Nigerians got some geography lessons. Someone needs to teach them about all the millions of people living in Antarctica.
