Sounds like a reasonable plan to me. Better than staying sane.

"So no, you can't do it. It is dangerous, extremely difficult, and only for those with several decades of sailing experience. Stay home!"

'Love it!
Of course I'll do the opposite.

With similar background as yours, I just bought my first boat - a nearly new and totally awesome 42' steel schooner based in the Bahamas. I plan to spend my first two seasons living aboard for six months at a time, on moorings and on the hook more than at marinas, practicing and experiencing everything, learning to single-hand and maintain it. While it's safely stowed for this hurricane season I'll be taking the small diesel, radio, and emergency response classes, and spending many more hours on SailNet studying the logistics and techniques of cruising.

At 60, feeling that I've got little time to waste, I'll mitigate risk as best I can and enjoy this major thrill for all I can get out of it. 'Slowly and methodically, but I'm going to be out there doing it !!!
