Well, like a said - it's just a beginning. I just started thinking about this, and definitely not "jumping on this in next 5 months".
I understand the point of "scaring me before I can do many mistakes", but I'm not type of guy who "just does it" (or at least not, when such amount of money
I just started my research
, and any USABLE info would be MUCH appreciated.
When I was 28, I came to other country with $10K in my pocket, not speaking english
AT ALL, and as you might guess, I've survived so far
. So I know how to live on budget
, and I know how and where I can save.
So back to "scary parts"
Throw me the approx. numbers. As I stated, I can fix or modify ANY of boat systems myself, including electronics
and mechanical. I can retrofit different engine
if needed. I can clean and paint hull
just like SV Delos did. I can repair fiberglass hull
if needed. So there will be just heavy work where I would need help.
? How much? Moorage? How much for 57ft boat?
Boat NEVER would be registered, insured or operated in US, so I guess, all US regulations
regarding licensing, inspecting etc might as well go to hell
I was rebuilding cars for quite while, so I KNOW how shitty government
system works and this is one of the main reasons why I want escape all this BS.
If my guests (I hope I'm allowed to have guests on board?
) decide to give me a little contribution - is it criminal?
