Any advice is greatly appreciated:
I have a plan to shift my house to be a Trawler
Is it still possible with all that is out there (red tape, fuel
prices, anti-American sentiment etc..) to live the dream of traveling the world on one's own power? (Sail or otherwise)
Even though study and have expertise in most mechanical/marine systems, (elect.,Nav,diesel, automony,fiberglass,gensets), have traveled the world since birth w/ my eight other siblings, can deep, deep free dive, expert sea knowledge and I am planning a long, blue water
course in New Zealand
. I am pretty scared. I have little time at the helm
So Iím starting with a 42' Grand Banks
(used) thatís busted up. Ill fix that/live on it and probably crash into the dock
allot. While I wait for the completion of a Nordhavn 47 or 62. (up to 18 months and which I can afford) And getting licensed.
Ultimately, I hope I can charter
when my savings run out and work a little bit if needed, in places.
Am I too late? I feel like I should have done this 5 years ago.
I will be traveling with two very pretty women also, so I will stick out like a sore thumb- is that safe?
This ball begins to roll soon, once it does, I cannot back out.
Iím sure I have missed allot,
