What??!! C'mon you know that boats ARE personal financial disasters.
Personally I think it would be a pretty good place to go hide from a pandemic flu. Being in medicine I think it is a very LIKELY possibility that we'll see a bad one in our lifetime.
PS As for financial disaster, I did take off for 4.5 months once while unemployed and broke hoping to wait out a bad economy. Beat the heck out of sitting dockside sending out 20 resumes a day and getting crickets in return.
