Re: Hello! Newcomer here looking for advice!
Hello Paulo, good to know there is a fellow countryman here.
Well, I can answer most of the stuff you asked:
1: I'll be dedicating a great deal off my time on the boat, possibly even putting my house on the market for renting. Good satellite internet connection and I'm good to go taking care of business while sailing.
2: Living with me only my wife, friends and family will be always welcomed, but they will go on on their normal routine. My sister, some cousins probably will have time to spend vacation, as will my parents as long as it don't compromise their health, that means probably only coastal cruising with them.
So, so far, only 2 as permanent crew for the heavy duty, but I'm sure we can find some friends now and then who will be willing to go on adventures.
3: Yes, my intention is to go crazy (not Amyr Klink crazy), but enough to take on some really challenging endeavors. We have plenty of time to keep a adventurous life, but now, as we get older, it will be fine to have the comfort of a sailboat to nest while globetrotting.
4: Yes, maintenance and specially insurance worries me a lot, and that is something I'll have to think carefully, but remember, I am aiming for comfort as well not only range, that's one of the reasons I'm stubborn about a bigger boat.
