Newb, noobie, amateur a, pretty much insane. Possibly one of the dumbest things Ive ever done. Sailing exp, zero(2 lessons) years and years of boating
exp though. A lifelong frivelous, it will never happen dream . Failing economy,slow business ,absolutely no ties,house, kids
,payments,cheating wife (divorced finalized 7/10). Its me and my jack russel. I closed my business ,havent taken on any more work . Read more material in 4 months then when I was in college.Spent way too much on surveys to realize everthing thats for sale
under 20k requires 20k to be seaworthy
. Cashed out my belongings or stored it. Its been a roller coaster for sure.
But Ive found my boat ( I think I'll know monday for sure) I'm just gonna do it. Pull out on Nov 10th from Tampa fl ( my 34th bday) ease my way towards the keys and learn along the way . Or I'll sink who knows. My best hope is to find some people in the keys to learn the rest. Besides flaming my post any simple practical advice or must haves ?
