Better not to take any guns into Mexico, even if you try to declare them you might still end up in jail and have to spend $$$'s to get out. Hopefully you will still have a boat when/if you get out.

Seriously, if he wants to sail, and end up in Florida at the end, how about just buying a boat in Florida and sailing the Caribbean?

More details and perhaps some photos would be hlelpful.
How big is the boat? Etc.?

If a man is to be obsessed by something, I suppose a boat is as good as anything, perhaps a bit better than most - E.B. White

Land,

You didn't say how much sailing experience your BF has or whether you planned to go with him. If you want to see a few more years down the road I suggest you say "good by" when he leaves and "hello" when you meet him at his destination. Good luck if you are for real. Well, good luck in any event, fun thread.

Hey Bubb2....I-95 will only get him to Mobile. Once he gets to Mobile he needs to take I-10 East to Jacksonville. When he gets to Jax I'll help him put it in the water. ;P

Looks like "Land" dropped off the radar screen, maybe she & BF have already departed now that they received all of the valuable input she asked for?
