Then take that money, whatever it is, and invest it into chartering bareboats from anywhere on earth you want. You won't need to ship anything anywhere or die trying to sail through all the world's hurricane seasons on the same trip. Bareboats are great. You are the captain and go wherever you want and only pay when you are using the boat. No storage fees or any other kind of fees. Plus, there is a relatively new and well maintained boat ready and waiting for you wherever in the world you want to sail. I have really enjoyed reading this thread and admire your perserverance but I am pretty sure you are only going to add to your previous misery with any of your current plans A-Z. Sometimes tough love is neccessary. Let that boat go and get on with really great sailing wherever you want on your holidays.
I think your way of approaching the cruising/sailing is definately a good one for me since I need more experiences than any thing.
But, I want to keep the boat too.
Have one near my space.

It seems too much trouble as you say to bring it near home.
Somehow I want to overcome last year's self defeating process.
May be you guys are seeing that I am falling inro a similar trap that I am putting around me...

Well, I am wrapping things up now, and within 3 days I will be in the US working my plans preping the boat for trucking.
I think at this stage, I will probably work at the details for the trucking, and then think about many things including yours (which is plan-B now) some more before I select my options.

Thanks,

Re: Trucking to California, Sailing to Hawaii and More . . .

Hello, to those who contributed to this thread.
Here is the update of what is happening.

(1) I arrived in the US, and at Annapolis where the boat is.

(2) I decided to transport the boat to Korea, and sail/cruise/fix the boat there in my own space and time without having to do something unwanted just days before I left Korea as I was wrapping up my duties there and thinking more clearly.

(3) So, I began to check out quote to ship the boat to Korea or Japan.
I found on my way to Annapolis, it is better to ship the boat from Baltimore which is real near Annapolis than from LA area.
Physically less damaging and less costier in terms of money.
So, I am in the selection mode for a shipping company to transport my boat.
Lewis Specialized Trucking graciously agreed to reroute the truck's initial route towards Baltimore thus utilizing my deposit that was already paid.

(4) On the day I arrived, I met a broker who told me there is a potential client who checked my obat three times and want to make an offer that night.
I received the offer which is not bad, but does not really do justice to the money I invested.
Since I am not in a hurry to fly towards Hawaii on this boat, I will give him a week for test sailing and surveying the boat.
But, I have to add that I really do not want to part with my boat...

Thanks again all you people who provided me with wise advices!
Happy Holidays for you all cruisers and sailors!
I still hope to see you on the water in the near future.


Yours,

I know it is more practical to see the boat at the current offered price.
But, I still want to keep the boat...

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Yours,
