I have a great deal of mechanical skills, I can sail, cook, clean, etc. I've been a financial advisor 31 years now - so I can help you with financial issues. we all know money
makes boats float and airplanes fly!
we spent 50 plus hours in a captains class recently. I have been boating
all my life mostly power boats. I've built boats and and an airplane. My son is awesome with electronics
. If you think you might have room for us - let's chat. I have excellent references
from my pilot friends. I've owned a piper super cub for about 12 years now - on youtube type in clifford dow and it will bring up some of my flying videos. My son and I are on a mission to buy our own boat and sail around the world. We rented a 41 footer in the BVI
last winter for 9 days and had a blast. We proved to ourselves we can sail.

Hello Cliff, just in case your options are still open, my wife and I have a 51ft Beneteau
and we are in Herrington HArbour North in Tracy's Landing, MD. We plan to leave, weather
permitting, NOV 15th on a journey to the Bahamas
and Beyond. Our vessel has 3 staterooms and 3 heads, she's in great condition. It will be our first long voyage so we were thinking some help and advice along the way would be much desired. Anyhow, that's what we got going. We are actually joining a caravan of newly retired captains. They are not in a hurry to get anywhere and I know from our marina to Virginia will be through the ICW
and then when we pass the outer banks
, we will offshore
the rest of the way. Once we get to Caribbean
, we will decide if we should push on to Panama
. Chew on this for a bit and let me know what you think.
