Sounds like you have a great plan! I've known several that have sailed out in the past few years with close to nothing, and they're sailing just fine. They took their skills with them and they barter/work along the way. They are having a great life. With that, I suspect that you will do just fine as long as the dollar holds its value and the government has not absconded with our retirement accounts.
Good luck to you and keep us all posted. If I'm still in southern California, give us a shout when you sail by.
Thanks! It's very motivating to hear others are doing it with less...I surely know there are many doing it with more!
