Dry Storage Question...

Hello ,
I am currently considering a new option in my sailboating future,Sailing from the east coast over to the Bahamas and Carribean for several months at a time,simple,lots of people do it.(Heres the catch)Then when my yearly adventure/vacation is over sail back to the USA and put my boat in dry storage and do any maintenance or repairs as required.Making her ready for the next season of sailing.
Could someone comment if my dry storage idea is a good one?Im trying not to break the bank with unneeded expenses,such as leaving my boat tied in a marina and being consumed by blisters and sea critters.
My boat(I hope) will be a 28-30 footer or so,set up for single hand sailing.(I''d really hope for a J28 but have never seen one for sale.I think this model could be put on a trailer and towed to my backyard!!)

Thanks,
Any opinions would be appreciated.
