The cost of sailing?
I''m considering buying a boat (a 30'') and sailing for several months to a year. I''m most interested in doing it cheaply. Other than the initial cost of the boat, how much would it cost, say, to sail down the coast of Mexico/central and south America or maybe to Trinidad. Obviously there are many variables, but barring any major problems.
Specifically, can I drop anchor anywhere and paddle into a village free of charge? What about this type of travel is costly?
