    I do business (in my profession) with both Matt (IT, etc., all the WiFi stuff) and his father (runs the place). I like them as people and almost moved my boat up there.
    I was planning to move to the area, but that is on hold for now...…..

    Mine would not become a UK citizen any more than me become an American one. I wonder what I even get from being a legal alien with green card. I don't work here nor want to but I do have to pay US federal taxes on my meagre pension from the UK although thankfully no longer have To pay tax there as well. Fortunately Florida does not collect State income tax from pensioners but we do get to pay them property taxes on our little condo, unlike when we lived on our boat, another good reason to live aboard apart from the marina fees. ST Augustine is nice, we bought the motor yacht we lived on there and will probably go to St.Augustine occasionally for short hop cruises. when we researched live aboard marinas it was pretty pricey and heavily booked whereas Daytona had spaces free at Halifax Harbor and was cheaper too at $10/ft/month versus IIRC $13 plus

    Hi Alan,
    I went through the Visa process via the US Embassy in London. It took about 10 months all up and multiple form filling plus a medical and an interview in London at the Embassy. married to a yank means automatic acceptance in theory but the paperwork is no different than for a suspected terrorist it seems and I doubt that has lessened any since I did it in 2011.

    Did you say you live nearby?

    hello Alan

    Thank you for your reply to my inquiry to crew from mid March to end of June - July. Yes it interests me to crew on your boat to take it from Florida to the UK. As mentioned I am a ASA licenced Coastal Skipper. I never crossed the Atlantic or Pacific though but looking forward to do so and learn more in the process.

    I could meet you in Florida any time before your scheduled departure and am happy to get off in the UK to go to Germany to see my folks before returning to Mexico.

    How would that go down financially. What do you expect from me ?.

    For ease of communication we could change to email. My email address is mattmexico at

    Thanks again for contacting me
