I may be able to get to FL to look at boats once I have arrived in St Lucia
but I then need to head off for a Christmas
engagement before coming back to the US in early January.
So potentially looking at three entries and exits from the US over the whole trip.
Hi Olly...this sounds a bit complicated to me.
Given that you will be in some kind of medical
recovery and new to sailing, the stress of buying
then selling the boat after just a few month may put you off sailing for good if things don't go well.
Sounds like diving
is your sport, so why not take part of your budget
and find a berth as paying crew on someone else's boat that is into diving
Advertise this desire and see who is looking for crew/dive buddy and a bit of help with expenses.
Just a thought!
