This is a sort of 'down the road' thing, but I'm trying to plan ahead.....or at least have a general idea etc etc..
I currently live on the gulf coast
, but my wife is a bit of a snowbird (not in the normal sense, but the kind that LIKES snow). Since she is following me around for my career now, we will most likely end up living back in MI down that road. I'm saving up for 'the' boat for later on (I'm currently 27).
The main purpose for having it will be for crusing the islands for around 4-8 months at a time. It would obviously be impractical to sail it down and back each time (would take a few months alone), so I'm looking for thoughts on what would be a good economical, safe area to leave the boat.
Any thoughts? I'm sure I'm not the only one to do this......
I will most likely purchase
the boat in the great lakes
area (fresh water
and convienant place for initial refit
and getting to know the boat). But would then like to move it down closer to my desired stomping grounds.
