Hello there sea dogs
. My name is Michael and I have just graduated from college. In order to delay my entrance into the real world I've gotten the crazy idea to buy a small cruiser and spend a few months sailing around Florida
and the Bahamas
First things first, I need to learn to sail. Haha. I have a solid 3 months of work and plunty of time to learn.
Second step is investing in a quality "affordable" boat. I am currently looking at a few 25-30ft cruisers. If anyone has an opinion on these boats (good, bad, expensive, etc) please let me know. I am desperate for some non-biased advice. I will post the links to the boats in the next post, I am writing from my phone
Third, cost. I can afford the price
of the boat, food
, gas, and other expendatures (alcohol). But I have no idea any of the hidden costs, dock fees
?registration costs? If anyone can give me a list of actual costs instead of having to guess what they would be greatful.
If anyone has any advice, suggestions or even a better boat please let me know.
I can not wait to enjoy a long vacation
on the seas.
