Hey thanks everyone. Yes I think it is quite clear I do not know what I want exactly.
I think it is the idea at this stage, but as with everything something anything needs to begin from somewhere?
This is what I am looking at :
2013 Leopard 44 Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com
That speaks to me. The PC version is of course the same. It is that aft section without clutter that for some reason stands out for me compared to any other. I liken it to Bora Bora
. I am enamored with waking up, leaping off the deck
into the ocean:
Bora Bora Resorts | Bora Bora Vacations | Four Seasons Resort
This is what I seek.
To put it bluntly, I already have a beach house, that happens to be on an island that requires a ro-ro to get it. That novelty has long worn off. Small population / community, where you are obligated to nod and grin and tip your hat good morning ma'am even when you don't feel like it. Thus a marina is out of the question. ZERO interest in living on top of one another, likewise even that fancy 4 seasons in Bora Bora
is too cluttered for my liking.
Seeking solitude in luxury. I don't see any reason why one cannot outfit a vessel with all luxuries and food
stuffs, park it in the middle of no where and relax?
House boat is interesting but I cannot see it being viable in the Caribbean seas. This excites me:
boat for some reason does more than sail or combustion. I do think one needs to be motivated. For some reason this new technology motivates me thoroughly. Conversely, as a youth did land sailing, did wind
surfing, and was never enthralled. Just never cottoned on. For sure it is a religion to some. It is just not there for me for some reason. What I can say is that give me a simulator and I am confident I could go anywhere. I am well attuned to sailing having sponsored and monitored in one way or another the likes of the youngsters Sunderland and his sister and Dekker and her endeavors. So to me setting sail wouldn't be a catastrophe. In the same vein I have been on container carriers plying the Atlantic from the Americas to Africa
, crossed the equator a number of times and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Maybe I am scared?
I mean how bad can sailing or learning to sail actually be?
I think the correct course of action is to actually try it. Charter
a vessel and a Captain
in the Caribbean for a week or two and give it a go. Try before you buy if you well.
Let me think....
