My plan is to start in the Bahamas
, sail down through the Caribbean
over the top of South American and through the Panama Canal
. This would take many years and for each leg I was planning to leave the 47' Cat and then fly home for 3-9 months at a time.
My question to those of you have done something like this is, what is the reality of finding slips along the way that are safe. By safe I mean from theft of gear/electronics/theBoat and safe from damage caused by negligence or indifference on the part of the slip owner.
I guess fundamentally the question is, is it common to find marinas
that will protect and safe guard my boat in my absence?
