The plan is to sail from south Florida through the Caribbean with an eye to making it to the Windward Islands, maybe Trinidad, and then sell the boat. Though there are a few longer jumps along the way, I expect it would be mainly coastal cruising (in my, admittedly, inexperienced opinion). An ocean crossing would be strictly accidental!
Since we expect will take a hit when we sell the boat we are trying to go as cheap as possible (I like the phrase “cruising on a beer budget”). We want to keep the cost of the boat as low as possible (so change that to “cruising on a domestic-beer-in-a-can budget”).
That said, in the past I have seen lists of boats and price ranges for each here on Sailnet, making me think that we are not completely insane.
As regards the intention to sell the boat at the end, I don’t suppose anyone knows of good places to sell a boat in the eastern Caribbean, do you?
