Use my boat

I have a 50 foot sailing yacht and a lust for sailing to far off places. Would you care to join me? I do not NEED crew as I can handle my boat by myself. I do need watch-keepers though. Perhaps you grew tired of maintaining your own boat and have retired from ownership? I am in the Caribbean at the moment and contemplating sailing from Colon Panama to Honduras for haul-out. Do a bit of cruising around the Bay Islands then return to transit the canal in January. Next cruise across the Pacific to Fiji and beyond. This is all a long term plan although I am happy to have the company for any part of my journey. All input towards passage planning will be appreciated from experienced and inexperienced people. This is a shared opportunity.

Everyone is a slave

I am a slave to my boat also, bless her !
We have a symbiotic relationship. I need her and she needs me. I have just posted details of a passage from Panama to Honduras for haul-out. just another leg of my journey through life.
You may be a slave to a wage but with that comes a pension, I just have my boat and my wits to live by. Just a different way of life I guess. i work everyday and my energies are absorbed by my boat, my reward is my freedom!

12 more years, I retire, and hopefully I'll be able to buy a bigger boat and live aboard. I'm pretty much living aboard my current boat (foreground in Avatar pic) 5 days a week, during the evenings anyway. I commute home in the mornings to then commute to work. After work, I drive down to unwind and just stay. I love being on the water.

Have a great trip.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Here on Veteran's Day and I'm working. Winds are supposed to be excellent this afternoon. Well, hopefully tomorrow I can sail.

You poor things

Hopefully when I quit working, perhaps a generous offer like the OP's will come my way and I can go on an adventure of a lifetime. In the meantime, I'm having a blast on my humble little boat.
