I need to be able to live comfortably aboard as I am giving up land to do this.
is so up in the air I can't even say if I can do this yet.
I had to sell my house at the lake and my property maintenance
business to pay for surgeries for my dad.
So we have gone from a net worth of 1.6-1.8 to maybe a couple hundred k right now.
I am doing my level best to get back to a strong position.
I have worked my way into a partnership
in a wireless internet
tv & internet business. but nothing of note for pulling cash for a boat and providing residual income
But I am working on it. My biggest obstacle at present is a fall from a second story roof while installing a relay for the internet. I have been unable to work in a productive manner for 8 weeks and the doc says I should not be trying for another 8 week so I am in a world of hurt right now but I will realize my dream somehow.
I do have some longshot investments left that may pay off big. hopefully one day.
SO long story short budget is up in the air.
I need to be able to carry enough stuff to live and I would like to outrun rather than out gun pirates hehe or at least prove to be more trouble than a bunch of mercs want to bother with.
SO: according to my situation at present I will have to make many concessions so individual wants will be superseded by actual current
I would like to be able to find good work in the caribe and be able to work my way to an upgrade after just getting out there. But I need to start in something capable of circumnavigating with a famliy of 3 with out promoting insanity just in case.
cruising budget would be around 1100 per month. I am hoping to double that as I am sure to need money
extras and an occasional lavish dinner for my beautiful and deserving albeit crazy enough to go with me , wife.
There now that I have clarified ha ha.
Any one have a free boat they need to get rid of?
How about any one have a boat they need tested for a year to be sure it is seaworthy
