Looking for information???


I will appologize up front, as I know not what I'm doing...

Never having done anything like this before I have no idea how this works.
My wife and I live in Costa Rica and I am an older, yet still working guy.. I have had a couple of sail boats in past lives and am ready to have another. My wife used to crew on charter cats out of St. Thomas, mostly providing fabulous gormet meals at sea, and providing a hand when necessary. I went from a 23' to a 40' sloop rigged boat and had just enough experience to be dangerous.. My work takes me through most of Central, South America and the Caribbean. I have been reading about Rio Dulce marinas in Guatamala, a short hop from my home. Seems like a perfect place for us to have a boat..
Now, the boat.. I am thinking about a ketch rigged boat in the high 30's to low 40' range with the ability to live aboard. Don't have a lot of cash, can put together some and would love to do some creative financing.. I've seen everything from 10K to millions and would like to stay closer to the 10K, reality, probably in the 30k range... Don't mind doing some work, just not looking for a five year project... Want to play with a little work..
We have a couple of "real captain" buddies that actually do this sailing stuff for a living, and because they like us and don't want to see us lost at sea, have offered up some hands on help... Just not in the boat finding part... Busy boys and girls.
My daddy told me that an having an ego served little purpose and I gave mine away over fifty years ago.. I have no idea where this message will go, not ever sure where the send button is.. Assuming I find it and this mess goes somewhere where it can be read I will have succeeded.
Looking for help, advice, a boat, and most of all, some great new friends...
