Do not own a boat yet (looking), chartered in BVI (2), and the Grenadines (1), sail with generous friends inland lakes. Our dream is to own a sailboat in the carribean to retire on in a few years, the stock market willing.
BVI, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Bequia, Tobago Cays, PSV,Mayreau, Union Island,
Sail more in the Carribbean and the South Pacific specifically Tonga and Tahiti, also would be interested in Greece, Italy and the French Riviera/
some months ago you asked about cruisers in the Caribbean, and why the charter companies are multihull and "we the people" are mono. Two answers: money & inexperience with twin hulls.

I sold the boat, due to a broken leg, that left me handicapped. I want to continue being on Seaknots, for pleasant reminders, and I thought of you. Be in touch, as I follow you in your adventures"
"Finally got back on Seaknots. Boat is sold to a family w no experience. He is currently, bringing the boat up to new additions. And doing a great job. We could use some advice on sail cleaning. Any experience in that let me know. Are you…"
