Hello, everyone! I am going to look for the Cruising Handbook by Calder. Yes, a month could be luck. I have read articles about folks almost giving up from being tired of looking at boats or getting multiple surveys done.
I posted in another area as well and mentioned about a 1000.00 a month budget
and I gave everyone a good laugh with that amount of money! Is it reasonable to find a boat that is ready to go for 55k or less that I 38-40 feet? I now think that 2000 a month is our target for expenses and fun and have another 10k set aside for emergencies. Is this realistic for cruising the Bahamas
and maybe head
down to the turks or bvi
? Then we will come back to Florida to sell the boat and head
back to NY and go back to work
with, hopefully, fond memories and an intact marriage!
I read through all of these forums
on this site on a regular basis as well as using google
to sift through for ideas and good old youtube. All of your feedback is really appreciated on here as a direct line to experienced sailors living the lifestyle I hope to be able to live in the near future.
