Thanks Zeehag. The tiger is always beeing kept varnishing and varnishing... the oDay has a new Betamarina motor boat. Time to come down to Costa Rica and do some sailing from Puerto Azul. Check their webpage. Good and fair winds from Costa Rica.
That's the way to live. I'm convinced. I had planned on taking my power boat to the keys to live on there. Now I'm looking for a liveaboard sailboat to base there and cruise.MAybe we'll bump into each other (not literally of course) in one of those bodies of water.
I sailed from the time I was twelve until I was in my late forties. Business took up to much time, and I found I could enjoy a powerboat if I had even a hour to spend.
