Here is our situation; I live on my boat in Luperon and have been sailing Florida and the Bahamas for a year. My fiance lives in Seattle. The plan was to have her finish up this year of work and meet me to continue the sailing in the Carribean. However, we were thrown a wicked curveball; I am back visiting the fiance in Seattle and find out she is pregnant! Yay! (yes my child
The baby is due in Feb.
SO, we have a few options:
a) leave the boat in the Carribean and come back and sail with the baby once it is old enough.
b) Sail the boat home to Seattle via Hawaii by February. (singlehanded). If I run out of time leave it moored to later return and finish the trip.
c) Sell the boat and buy another in Seattle.
I am most interested in hearing feedback/opinions on option B. Sailing to Panama in Oct. Through the Canal, Leave to Hawaii in November; then possibly Hawaii to Seattle Dec/Jan time permitting. I would leave the boat in Hawaii if necessary. The boat is set up well, SSB, wind vane, auto pilot, ais, etc. I only carry about 50 gals of fuel so sailing is imperative. Admittedly, I have some blue water experience, but a great deal of coastal cruising and singlehanding.
Thanks for the feedback.
