Another hypothetical scenario from me . Assume I have bought my floating/sailing steel
bunker and I am in La Paz
or have persuaded someone to take it further down south to a lesser developped area . I am trying to picture my potential probs and assess, if I want to live with them. I am assuming that I have spent time learning
the boat, know how to put it in gear
This whole exercise is a cash preservation exercise, not an exercise of "don't have any, but still want to do this ".
is something that gets known in Mexico
,especially if blond but I have a darling lab retriever mix that pretends to go psycho with visitors .Good enough ? No guns- liability in Mexico
Don't even ,mention please because thread drift would be imminent.
I don't see a major problem with that as I am currently off the grid as water
is concerned . The house has water
, but water quality doubtful, so all water for cooking/ drinking gets bought . A dinghy
trip per week just to deal with groceries and water and a day on the hook in the marina(paid if need be) should be ample to restock, do the laundry
? Plus solar shower
, dives off the swim platform for the necessary and a bit of water to take the salt
No experience of this but weather
in the Sea of Cortes is 50:50 ? 6 months fairly even to 6 months from rollercoaster adrenaline level winds to "take me home Momma you were right all along" type and the days of hurricanes when I would need to move to shelter, unless just anchored of one of the hurricane
shelter bays. Is this assessment reasonable?
Insurance for boat
: Have not looked into this at all as I would be a german national with residence in Mexico with a colourful flag , maybe Bermuda
. Donīt think I can fly the Mexican flag or that there is an international Mexican leisure vessel register, but I could be wrong.
: If I understand it correctly you can only have a foreign license
transcribed to a Mexican license, if you are a foreign national,meaning there is no vhf
license test you can sit as a foreigner here and get one from here . How would I get one to transcribe ? I would not really like to return to Germany
for a license although auntie would be ecstatic and ground me permanently at my 46 years of age for even contemplating this adventure.
: I am assuming I wil just need to dock
at marina for whatever is necessary and just stomach the bill then.
Have I missed any glaring inconveniences necessities of this scenario? Anybody done this in Mexico for any length of time?
