New to cruisers forum and loving it! This is a fantastic thread.
Im coming over to florida
from the UK in a couple weeks specifically with the task of picking up a cheap
multihull! (seems to be the best place to find 'em!).
As a 20something marine
biologist looking for something i can use as a platform for research
and a non-profit ocean media company, i have a very low budget
. Around $20k. Took me enough years to save that so i'm trying to do my best not to blow it on something that's going to fall apart, but i need something big enough for a team of 3 or 4 people to live aboard with some equipment
. I intend to keep costs to a minimum, living off the hook while slowly doing a full circuit of the caribbean/central america over the next few years at least.
I'm time rich and money poor, so i'm happy to wait for someone who wants to offload their boat for some quick cash. I'm pretty technical, but never owned a boat, so not keen for any complicated projects.
Can't decide between the tri's or the cat's, but i'd love something that i can beach. There's an american guy selling a US registered boat real cheap
, but it sounds a bit fishy to me. It's in port in cuba
, where apparently, he overstayed his visa and was deported by plane. Anyone know a Captain
