free boat, plus $100 a month for food, and even if you only saved $5000 you could stay out for potentially 10 years, depending where, and how much fish you eat. seriously. get a 100# bag of rice, cooker fuel, and enjoy life. dont worry about big expensive boats.
I live in SE Asia and all that rice gets pretty boring. I'd say get yourself big pile of cash, buy a nice boat with some of it and use the rest to buy some decent food and booze ... now life is much better.

I'm with Doodles on this one. After living in Japan for 3 years, I can never ever eat sushi again.

Go buy some real food!

You are probably right, maybe I tend to worry too much of big fancy boats, somehow I did not thought of it since you mentioned it. This is why people say got to life life right now in this moment. When it comes to me dummy, I have overworked, maybe it is truly a time to start enjoying simple pleasures and stop worrying. Thanks for a reminder.

its all in how you want to live. i wish someone had informed me of boat life when i was 17.
to be honest, the wife would not go for a small free boat. she needs space.

I am not 17 but not yet 30 so I think if I get tired of everything I may even do it, if I can find a boat that takes me. Question for smarter people than me: how can I get it started to be on someones boat, how to find this kind of people who would take me on a boat trip.
