Lots of General Questions
Hey guys I have been lurking here forever but just registered this morning and have a few questions, I am in the research phase of cruising and have lots of questions to get me headed in the right direction......
I am going freelance with my web design which should allow to work from anywhere with internet access which should be fairly easy with marinas/satellite internet, and my wife makes jewelry which we hope to have up and running in an online store soon, so I think we should be able to sustian the cash flow required for cruising.
But I still need some general poking to get myself headed in the right direction, I know you guys here are obviously biased towards sailboats but whats your opinion on displacement fuel efficient motorboats for long term cruising, I would think the overall operation costs and maintence would come out to about the same......
Also I am still undecided on a cruising destination, I would either like to do the great loop cruise or head to the bahamas and carribean, any opinions?
Also I have always read you should buy the boat which will take you cruising now.....anyone have suggestion on makes/models to keep an eye open for that I can buy and "fix up" for an initial investment of $50K.....
Here again I feel like I must remind folks I am not trying to make any firm decisions here just get myself headed in the right direction for more specific questions.....
Thanks in advance for the input and advice
