Re: Bug out boat

The only realistic disaster that your boat might provide relief for would be your own personal financial disaster. If you lost your job and home and were unable to obtain another (pick any reason) and your boat is paid for, it could simply provide shelter. You would still be reliant on a functioning society to provide repair parts and, most likely, food.

It is possible that you might want to escape a flood, earthquake, or other natural disaster for a few days or weeks. However, I think most would drive to a relative or rent a hotel somewhere.

Jeanneau 54DS

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
