We're an aspiring cruiser family
on ways to get our feet wet without jumping into a boat purchase
. We've lightened to the overhead already...working remote
from Playa del Carmen Mexico
at the moment and down to suitcases. I'm gung-ho, but my wife is a little hesitant--we also have kids
6 & 4. We previously lived aboard as marina queens on San Francisco
bay...a year or so in Berkeley and a few in Alameda. We loved it, but it was challenging to maintain conventional life outwardly, and my wife was not so fond of the cold/wet/25 knot sails
. I'd guess I have 50+ days sailing under my belt, mostly single-handing (S2 9.2).
Does anyone have any ideas of how we could spend some time on a 40ish ft boat
in the $50-200k valuation? Chartering in the BVI
for a week on a half million dollar boat doesn't seem like it's going to give us the same experience as spending more day to day life on a boat that's actually in our price
range, and it doesn't seem any charter
operations are running 25 year old boats. Ideally we'd spend a month or more on a boat before buying
Is anyone out there managing to work remote
via 4G? I haven't quite got the gumption to let the job go...yet.
