Places to keep a boat in Caribbean ?
I am contemplating purchasing a boat. I would want to keep the boat in the Caribbean at least 6 months out of the year and then probably bring her north to NC or places north for the Hurricane season.
One boat I am currently considering is based in the USVI. But based on the research I have done so far, keeping a 47' monohull sailboat anywhere in the VI is going to run HUGE money. Like $1500+ per month just for a slip. Thats just no doable for me.
Where else should be considered? AS long as its reasonably accessible via airlines I am open to suggestion. Puerto Rico? Windwards? Bahamas?
Any experience with slip or mooring availability and costs in various places is much appreciated!
