I have been lurking here for a few weeks researching cruising the Caribbean
for three months out of the year on a 32ft monohull
. I don't have a boat
yet but have a bunch of experience sailing lake mi out of charlevoix with family
and friends. I have people to help me find the right boat
, learn how to sail it, and to make the first few larger passages.
I found that IMIS Ins. would give me insurance
that covers hurricanes for 1200/ yr with 3500 deductible. Also called the green turtle boatyard in Acoba, (I read Acoba was cheaper than Nassau) they would store the boat for 6/ft per month and 150 to take the boat in and out of the water
. So far it sounds reasonable.
Here is what worries me. My wife is a teacher and has may-july off and I have may-mid august off. I know that no one knows for sure where or when the weather
will hit but is it a bad idea to hang out in the Caribbean
season? It is the only time I could go for a long period.
We are pretty frugal and would like to anchor
out as much as possible are there a lot of anchorages
in Acoba during the summer?
I really like your site, it has been very informative,
Thanks for any input,
