Thanks Dean!
That is helpful and your right the trip from Schenectedy NY on the Mohawk River to the Black River at Lake Huron MI cost me seceral thousand dollars in a 20 ton 42' aft cabin power boat, it was well worth it but only 5 days and about 700 nauticle miles so kind of expensive. We want to live at a Marina Yacht club and travel a couple times a year to the islands; netherland antillies, virgin islands... my fav's are St. Martin (Dutch side) and Martinique just to name a few, not sure if that is possible by sail but really want / need to find out and what port I should be lloking for as a home base... sorry I don't spell very well but most people get the message anyway. Not sure on the sailing stuff ok so you used only a few gallons of fuel but how much really did you spend on the boat that year in sails, rope rigging and all that I have heard it's expensive to keep up with and maybe more so in the salt air and water??
