Re: New Hampshire to Florida / Bahamas / Caribbean

Sounds like you and your Husband will enjoy Yourselves! We have much in common. We had never stepped foot on a sailboat before we took sailing lessons. We loved staying on the water! Took about a year to find our boat, a 2002 Wildcat catamaran. Took about 10 days to bring the boat up the coast of Florida from Key West on our own. We had our challenges but we loved it. Freddie is Retired but I am still working and looking forward to our first trip to the Bahamas this winter. Sounds like you have the right ingredients to be successful Energy, Commitment, and a sense of humor!

You like that then you will like this; I normally tell guests to move slow and don't get hurt, because I've decided that it is less risk/cost to just go ahead and kill them than bring them back in injured and worry if they are the suing type!

Ha! Ha!

We will definitely look you up Don when we get to New Hampshire. Expect it to take 2 years to sell all the rentals. I see you post all the time on this site, so will know if you are still around.

I knew other people have done this successfully with little prior experience. If we purchase in Florida or Texas or anywhere South we will hire someone to be with us moving the boat. I dont' think we will be that gutsy at first without more experience. Hats off to you guys.

How long until you retire?
