As excited as I am about having my boat and wanting to head
out to the Bahamas
(and beyond), I've decided that I would be much better off if I spent one year working, living aboard
and fully outfitting the boat. If I were to head
out now, like I was planning, I feel like I would be rushing it and not fully prepared.
Fortunately the job I am working on will allow me to live anywhere close to a major airport
since all of the work will be travel. I know that I want to be as far south as possible (I'm in Jacksonville
right now) but don't want to pay outrageous slip prices (read Miami
and Ft Lauderdale). Does anyone have suggestions on a good place for a liveaboard
in the North Palm Beach or Jupiter area? I've found some that are around $600/month plus electric
(I'm about 31' LOA) but also marinas
in the same area for $1800/month. I'll probably be heading down that direction in February.
