I'd recommend you read the Boat Inspection Trip Tips thread I started and use it to determine if the boat is worth going forward on.

Getting a slip is going to be a neat trick, as I understand they're in scarce supply there. Can you get the slip the boat is currently in, if it is in one. Also, are you looking to sail the boat back or sell it at the end of the four months. If you're looking to sail it back, is it capable of making the trip? If you're going to sell it, are you ready to absorb the costs of buying it, storing it there, using it, and then selling it, which may be fairly substantial in the current economic climate???

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
