That's an important consideration, but not one that I've taken into account. We've been with the same credit union since 1972.

Thanks again,

I kept the same coverage package with me after retirement and this suited us well, but in 2011 I picked up my Medicare card. I selected the plan "F" supplemenal that seems to do well for travelling. My current advice would only apply to the "seasoned" sailors..... the "youth impaired" sailors or what ever euphemism best describes "old farts"!

Thanks for the input!!

Although I feel increasingly "youth impaired," I'm not eligible for Medicare and won't be for some time.

Seems like having a permanent address stateside is commonly considered one of the more important ducks.

Does anyone have experience with satellite phones?
