Re: Thinking about sharing/partners LIS
I've also had thoughts of "what's next".
For us, rather than keep the big boat, shared or otherwise, I think it would be a lot more fun to downsize to a grand old classic like an 18 to 24 foot gaffer of some type. Lots of varnish (with covers) and a head turner, but stable, easy to sail, and relatively low maintenance. Mostly day sailing and fishing with the occasional week long cruise. A couple of nights aboard, with meals out, and a couple of nights in a hotel, for the shower, pool and room service, perhaps.
At this point, the question would be where this all might take place. We have zero interest in anywhere that doesn't have a year 'round sailing season in a T-shirt and we would not be opposed to one of the lesser developed EC islands. Hurricane season isn't much of a factor with a trailerable boat.
On the other hand, I've heard Uruguay is very hospitable to expats these days....
