As I mentioned before, we sold everything, so we have our savings, we just looking for advices, like Pardeys books, marine diesel engine troubleshooting and stuff like that.
OK, so you have your savings and you also have a web site where you are asking people to donate over $70,000 to help fund your dream.
Tell you what...how about you helping fund my dreams of retirement. I'm 61 and it looks like I will have to work until I'm 65.... Would love to do it at 63. how about sending a couple of thousand $$ my way.

My wife and i have been working hard for over 40 years. I think our dreams of retirement trumps your dreams of sailing around the world.

A wise man once told me, what if?, and thats how everything begins... If I don,t try, there is no way to find out, no matter what the result is, I will be happy and won't regret it. I don't even know if I will be alive at 65 years old, or capable of travel by then, I think there is no perfect time to do it, I'm not afraid to loose it "all", some pepole will say I should wait and it's not the correct time to do it and others will say that I should just do it. I understood already that I look like a @$#* for linking the webpage, but that,s why I'm here, to get advices, thank you for being honest.
hey, you've got a dream and I don't think anyone here will tell you not to follow it. I say go for it and I wish you only the best luck.
I just have a problem when a fairly young and apparently healthy couple are asking strangers to help fund this dream. now if either of you had some major health issue and you needed the money to correct the problem, heck, I might even kick in a few bucks myself even though you are complete strangers.
