I have a 50 foot sailing yacht and a lust for sailing to far off places. Would you care to join me? I do not NEED crew as I can handle my boat by myself. I do need watch-keepers though. Perhaps you grew tired of maintaining your own boat and have retired from ownership? I am in the Caribbean at the moment and contemplating sailing from Colon Panama to Honduras for haul-out. Do a bit of cruising around the Bay Islands then return to transit the canal in January. Next cruise across the Pacific to Fiji and beyond. This is all a long term plan although I am happy to have the company for any part of my journey. All input towards passage planning will be appreciated from experienced and inexperienced people. This is a shared opportunity.

Everyone is a slave

I am a slave to my boat also, bless her !
We have a symbiotic relationship. I need her and she needs me. I have just posted details of a passage from Panama to Honduras for haul-out. just another leg of my journey through life.
You may be a slave to a wage but with that comes a pension, I just have my boat and my wits to live by. Just a different way of life I guess. i work everyday and my energies are absorbed by my boat, my reward is my freedom!

12 more years, I retire, and hopefully I'll be able to buy a bigger boat and live aboard. I'm pretty much living aboard my current boat (foreground in Avatar pic) 5 days a week, during the evenings anyway. I commute home in the mornings to then commute to work. After work, I drive down to unwind and just stay. I love being on the water.

Have a great trip.

couldn't have said it better myself
Here on Veteran's Day and I'm working. :( Winds are supposed to be excellent this afternoon. Well, hopefully tomorrow I can sail.

Life just sucks for us slaves
You poor things ;)

Hopefully when I quit working, perhaps a generous offer like the OP's will come my way and I can go on an adventure of a lifetime. In the meantime, I'm having a blast on my humble little boat.
