CaribDream is on a distinguished road
I took a look at the blogs you guys have. Wow. You are all way further ahead in the game than I with your boats.

My plan is to hopefully find my boat in the islands when the time to move aboard comes. Tortola? We will sell our house her in CT which will more or less be a wash. Sell all the cars but one. Keep my summer lake house in the Adirondacks which I have saved enough to pay off now, and my boat there was bought cash. Ideally, I would like to spend 6-8 months living aboard in the Virgin Islands, and the rest at our lake house.

So we would be zero debt, with some kitty for a boat and some running costs. My main issue - a) getting the balls to commit, and b) figuring out a way to make enough money to maintain that life and make it stick. We have no kids, but we have a dog and two cats which complicate things a bit.
