Just wanted to say hi to everyone and findout if there are people in a similar situation as myself. I've really enjoied sailing for a while now and have toyed around with the idea of packing it up and cruising for a while. I'm planning on paying off the boat
before I go but I won't have much in the way of savings... I do plan on working along the way...maybe sail to Puerto Rico
, find a job for a while, Sail to Barbados
, find a job for a while, etc... Anyone had experience with this? Also, what are the rules on anchoring
? Has anyone lived aboard their boat
and worked a 9-5 job using a dingey to get to and from shore? I'm wondering how much of a pain in the butt this will be but, as the cost for slips is staggering here, I don't see much other way. Also, is it legal
to leave your boat at anchor
someplace for an extended period of time?
