long term charter
There''s no work, so we''d like to go sailing in the Caribbean. We sail on the SF Bay, have chartered in the Grenadines and the BVI. But there are so many places in between that we''d like to see. The idea is to use airline miles to fly to the caribbean, arrange a longer term charter, and go sailing. Another possibility is to buy a boat, sail it around for some months, then put it in charter. Or buy a cheaper boat (not eligible for charter)and then keep it somewhere, and sell if when we aren''t using it anymore. Should we start at the bottom and sail up? Charter or buy? Is it possible to arrange a long term charter? Looking for ideas, share yours. Money is not unlimited.
