Re: My Escape Plan - Insights Wanted

Minnewaska is right, entrence fee's, extensions and departure ( which I rarely pay) bring the biggest baddest ground taclke you can handle and call it your personal mooring. I have 70 pound danforth stored where my engine was> gigantic for a 28 footer, my primary is 50 pound CQR with 100 5/8 chain. I've never and I mean never paid for a mooring. Any where there is a mooring field there is anchorage. The harbours anchorages are'nt policed like the States or Canada. Marinas in the western Caribbean are generally 5 bucks a foot or so. Not the Yacht Clubs. avoid the word and people who think they are on a yacht. a yacht is a 100 feet or more and has a professional crew clipping your toe nails for ya. You are a sailor on a boat, with that mind set the world is your oyster and living is free.
