I am sorry for the American economie being a bit fragile,
i am not in the pursuit of other people down fall , or down luck.
we all go throught high and low time financialy , physicaly, emotionaly ..ect..
i was just ask on this thread about informations , and idea , and fisiabilities of my plans..
I have save some money
for a business venture and work hard toward that , but the "old mate" that i show my idea , took it and run with it , and deal on my back to take control of my compagny..
well, i have no intention again to involve lawers and else ( done than , been there )..because..
i have no intention to deal in life or work with inscrupulous people.
and my gaol has never been te be rich , but happy and heath first.
So , then , instead of still working so hard ..i can go sailing then,
i am happy with simple thing.
So i repeat:" i am not going to the States to buy a boat "because the economy is having a tuff time "!!!!!!!
I am coming to find a boat to sail , as sailing for me is living ......and a boat must have a soul
i am looking for a well built boat, honest, fair,safe friend to take me along to some journey of my little life..
I have a budjet of 50 000 for the boat and 20 000 for refit
i rebuilt boats all my life
when i was 17 , i totaly rebuilt a 1931 timber boat of 33 fts..every bolts, riverts, planck, cotton ,frame , bouiling the timber ..ect.. all , the all thing !!!!!!!
and then i rebuilt few others , from plywood
, to west system, to fiberglass
, to composite..ect..ect. from prototype racing
baots to multi to monos..ect
i used to write too for sailing magazines ..
i learn the "hard way" ...like life..trusting too much people , and fixing other people mistake..and my own of course !!!!!
So , because of the fantastic internet
, we can comunicate with similar minded people all around the world.and it is great..
i am not in business, just in a journey of living , and been at sea for me is living ..
i do not drink, i do not smoke, i hate shopping
, i am a minimalist, i have no religion ..just been "me" and sailing the Ocean , meeting similar minded people..
call it an adiction , an escape , so what !!
better than all the mates around that get drunk , selfish , or control frick in business or relationship..
well , alone at sea, i am just by myself , and living the chilwood that i never had ..
like my son say one day when he was around 8
"mum you are a day dreamer "...
maybe i am , but i do get prepared , had asking infos on a web site is one of my way to get organised and prepare.
