paid crew (kinda )

I have a 54 foot aluminum gaff rigged schooner on the hard in Trinidad . It was fully functional when stored ( some salon interior incomplete ), but that was 5 years ago . Perkins 426 with 2100 hours from new,,WH auto pilot . boat is beautiful and tough yet I'm sure at this stage needs several weeks prep. I am looking for someone to sail it to Stuart Fl so that I might sale it. I will give some one half the proceeds of the sale to bring it back....this is not a junk boat I have 250000 in it...Merit Walther "Rover".....PS if you want to buy it , I will take 400.00 a month payments for 10 years

10 y x 12 month x 400 that is 48k plus the repairs that is a lot.. Beside that sailing it from Trinidad to fl in this condition is complicated. Maybe u can repair there. Cheaper I guess
Good luck

After 5 years in Trinidad what will be the situation with customs? There are probably taxes and duties to pay.

More info...
Roughing it in a boat with a crap salon for a couple of weeks is no sweat... but sailing a possible scrapper is something else
Your asking a lot on 'Faith' which is in short supply lately...

Okay thanks mate... days are spent holding a bit of beach in place in Ferragudo for a couple of weeks... looking at the boats on the anchorage and hot young Portuguese ladies... in between swinging my balls around...
Hows things down your way...?

Re: paid crew (kinda )

Sounds like 10K to get it in the water. Then what? What's the country of origin? What yard in Trinidad how much is owed? What is the draft and air draft. Stuart is low on water and short on bridge height. Where to in Stuart?Ect.

Re: paid crew (kinda )

I just did something similar (without the long distance sail ) it should get in the water for under 5,000 , if the engine didn't store well , then all bets are off . the boat has correct and current paperwork as a U S vessel , has correct paperwork to store in Trini without problems . boat is a long way from a scrapper. and salon is nice just unfinished..boat was commissioned in 2000..To the poster that thinks 48,000 at o interest over 10 years for a 55 foot aluminum boat is to high ..well sheesh..I am in Stuart Fl now on my other boat.. draft and bridges pose no problem .

Actually 1200 odd miles aint that far... but as I said... a lot more info and guarantees needed regarding the money side before I'd consider it... not as obliging a doormat as I used to be..
Legal documentation making me a 50% owner for example... stamped and counter signed by your bank.
