I have been a spectator of these forums
for a short time and have picked up a great deal of knowledge. However, I would like to throw out my question/scenario to you guys in order to get some custom feedback. I thank you in advance for your contributions.
I'm a 20-something, single
, adventurous guy who lives along the Lake Erie coast. I dread winters here and I'd much prefer to relocate to Charleston, SC (Beaufort/Edisto area), but my business and network keep me in the area. I believe the next best option is to buy a catamaran
and sail during the harsh winter months to the Caribbean
. I have the means to buy a vessel and to live aboard for 2 or so months I would be away.
I know I want a multihull
, do you have any watercraft recommendations for someone who would be winging this solo? Any good used ones for under $50k?
Do you recommend any particular course (January-early March)?
There are sailing academies along Lake Erie, do you recommend me attending one?
Any other advice would be very helpful. Thanks!!!
