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.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
