My plans and objectives are already set-out for years ahead, no problem on this side.
It won't take me long to uproot and be off, being doing it part way around the world since I left school.
I can work in a lot of countries world-wide where others can't even get a visa, let alone a work permit.
I am able to support myself on the water financially under sail or laid-up as it will be almost the same I’m doing now.
I'm fine with sitting in a lovely deserted cove or island away from civilization doing this from time to time.
I have relations in New Zealand who could do with a little visit in the next few years.
The money coming in when I’m under sail is not a problem; I just am not waiting another year or so to do this. Yes I'd have a lot more money to buy a better yacht but I’ll also be a year closer to meeting my maker.
I can get a boat just now that will do me for 2-3 years, then I can see how much I love the life-style, and I will be in a better position to buy about 4 times the amount I have just now if I continue with this.
I simply don't have the cash right now to get anything more than I'm looking for and this doesn't bother me in the slightest.
I've gone with-out and done with-out over my life-time to get the things I want, but now I want something for only me again, which is too dart around the world, or part of it, and explore before it's too late and I'm not even able to climb a mast or jump around.
My options are a lot more than the average person on the planet so this is already sorted out in my planning.
So you will see I have thought this through with all the might and muster I can get together.
All I need is a safe, seaworthy yacht, which after simply finding this forum by chance and listening and learning from you all in here I'm further ahead than I expected to be at this point.<BR style="mso-special-character: line-break"><BR style="mso-special-character: line-break">
I have a lot of people around also who are behind me on this one.
I'm not a normal follow the flow or rat-race follower as I sometimes call it, and when I get an idea in my head to help me enjoy life I'm off, too much planning is no use and a waste of one’s life and too many people the world over plan, plan and plan some more, never going to happen, I’m happy the way I do things.
I have never in my life ever borrowed money and never will, I bought my only house cash a long time ago when a house was about a 1/10 of the price nowadays, okay I sold it a few years later to fund my travelling, hiking, climbing etc but not a problem.
I say this because I could go out and ask no problem for a loan but them I'm tied to this and owned by someone till the debt is paid off.
I can't and never have allowed myself to do this.
Hope this makes it easier to see I have my objects already planned out, maybe not what the world expects of me, or indeed what most of the people in the world will shy away from in the way I just decide to do something, but I am on the road now and putting this into action.
All I need is a nice cheap seaworthy yacht.
Sailing it, and everything else associated with the lifestyle is seriously not a problem and nothing I think even enters my mind on any kind of doubt about this.
I want a yacht,
I'm asking the world for help, in any shape or form.
All I need to do is get a yacht with-in my budget which there are plenty of out there to be had and all the help I get from the world in steering me to the right kind of seaworthy yacht I'll be safe in.
I'm not interested in becoming a racer, or competing in sailor of the year regattas or anything remotely like this.
I don’t know what any of you do or how you support yourselves, but it never crossed my mind as what anyone does is down to them.
I'll be fine, but thanks for the concern MMNETSEA
