Re: Financing a Family Circumnavigation
If you have to ask the question about the $300k boat and $50k cruising budget you can't afford to go that route. Some people just have lots of money - we met folks cruising on $2 million boats and they weren't worrying about paying for it all. Most people do it with a much cheaper boat and much lower budget. the methods mentioned here pretty much make sense except it is very, very rare that people work on route unless it is some form of telecommuting. Flying home to work also happens. i am back in Canada now working and will return to the boat in Grenada after hurricane season.
Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
