I hope you are not doing this in order to make youtube videos and fund your adventure this way. It's fine for adults, but bringing two pre-teen children
on such a journey is reckless, IMO.
Thanks for the reply! No we're not looking to fund our journey through social media. We're going to use the cat for charters for a year or so out of our hometown in FL. So we were hoping to find one in FL, the East Coast
of the US, or BVIs so we do not have to leave our kids
for too long to get it back here.
My apologies I should have mentioned that we're looking for 4 berths. We've been seriously looking since May, but planning this for about 10 years, we wanted our kids to be a little older to mak ocean crossings. We've only been able to get time away from work
on a weekend here or there and more locally. The shape of the boats and price so far have not equaled out for the amount of work
and updating they need to still be in our price range. We have talked about financing
options if we find the "right" one, but we haven't found her yet. That is why we were reaching out to the sailing community for other search options or suggestions for other ways to track her down.
