Re: Purchasing a live-aboard abroad
If you consider the time and expense of moving a boat a good bit of the way around the world (west coast to the Med), is it economically worth it to you to move it that far when you consider the cost of a boat where you want to use it?
Good deals can be had in many of what I call 'ports of broken dreams' but the reality of commissioning a boat far from your home and possibly more economical parts outlets, can make a good deal much less so.
"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.
