Re: Young cruisers

Woulda shoulda coulda famous words of the budding cruiser. You either downsize everything, get rid of all debt, sell the expensive toys (bike car and make do with a clunker) grab the dream by the throat and just do it. Friends of mine not long ago sold both there cars (his and hers) His paid for their mortgage for @18 months + income from rent for the unit. Hers bumped up the cruising fund. They where going to put some stuff in storage but found that was an added cost they did not need. So the unit is rented fully furnished, they gave or sold off their accumulated treasures (junk). They live in the marina where we are, and like us are waiting for the weather. If you have kids then that could be a little difficult depending on age.
