Hello to everyone on the forum.
I want to buy/build a boat to travel around for a while.
I know the basics of sailing and will be learning
the rest soon.
when it comes to boats I'm a newbie
what would be a good boat for sailing around? I would also be living on it for long stretches of time. and then ofc the question is it better to build one (via a kit or something) or buy a used one (with some help from people that know whats good) and clean it up, or buy a new or nearly new one?
note that I'm not rich and I'll be working very hard for it.
then you have the cost aboard which will be basic food/water/music and all thats needed to keep it running etc.
What I have been thinking about is; stopping once in a while and staying there for a while for work(calling around where I want to stop and ask for work, doest matter what.)/repairs/restocking.
even though that not everyone thinks its a good idea I would really like to know if its possible and maybe a small price
estimate (say 50 000 euro's for the boat alone inc. repairs
or whatever?) I live in belgium at the moment and I'm dead serious about this. But as this is all new to me.. I could use some much needed help.
ps: I know it will take a while and I know it will be alot of hard work. but i also know I want to do it
pps: I'm good at hoarding knowledge and will be doing it for every aspect of sailing inc maintenance
and so forth.
