Re: Can I sail to the Bahamas with NO experience?

I'm sensing somewhat of a divide in opinion...

Re: Can I sail to the Bahamas with NO experience?

Yeah but then I'm just out $20k? At least buying a boat gives me some equity that I can later recoup even if it's at a loss.

Re: Can I sail to the Bahamas with NO experience?

Well I do know the 'driving' physics are nothing alike!:D I'm comparing more in regards to the margins for error.

From the complete outside, looking in, I just feel like as long as you're...

Re: Can I sail to the Bahamas with NO experience?

Thank you bljones, that's exactly my sentiments. I'm not trying to downplay or trivialize the difficulties but c'mon, is it really the 'Daytona 500'?

Re: Can I sail to the Bahamas with NO experience?

Can you elaborate some on the feasibility of a complete noob 'gunkholing the...

Re: Can I sail to the Bahamas with NO experience?

Okay so let's just remove the more Southern destinations from the equation. I just want to make it over to the Bahamas from S.FL. Then sail from one island to another at our leisure.

Re: Can I sail to the Bahamas with NO experience?

Re: Can I sail to the Bahamas with NO experience?
