Just taking a second to say hello.
I see many people who are new take the time to set out their 'dreams' and goals so here are mine:
I'm an avid diver, been on motor
boats for years. But as a kid I sailed a lot and I see that as the only realistic way to get around on the ocean once oil
hits $200 a barrel.
masters done, Coastal Nav under way... The next step is to book part of a small yacht down in the carribean and watch how a pro handles a small boat for a week. Then I guess it's learning
bareboating and taking it from there.
Hopefully in a few years I'll be comfortable taking a boat 30 miles off shore and poking around some pinnacles or a remote
wreck or just cruising round island lagoons looking for spots to take underwater photos. No big round the world
trips for me - I've done enough weeks on boats to know how risky that is!
So my next post will be about finding a boat to rent (skippered) for a week in the Caribbean
when I find the right forum...
