happy holidays richard. hope yer enjoyin yer new explorations. keepin ye in mind my friend. God Bless.
Why don't you ask me a simple question, Pat? Something like...how high is up? Or...how much does a boat cost?
This forum restricts comments to 2,000 characters, so I can't give you the answer I want. So I'll say this...Lauderdale became too big, too crowded and too expensive, not to mention the crime. The place I loved turned into a place I couldn't stand over a 40+ year span.
Economics has a lot to do with it. Bottom line, playing around on boats most of my life wasn't financially rewarding and, in retirement, I simply can't afford to live in my own country anymore. Panama has wonderful benefits for retirees and I can afford to live here. It is also listed by Forbes, Money Magazine and others as one of the top 10 places for retirees to live in.
If you'd like to see what I've been doing in the past year it's all on my blog: /http://oldsalt1942.wordpress.com/
Go back to June 2009 for the start of my time here.
As for boating, the Bocas del Toro archipelago isn't a shabby place for boaters.
Richard, why did you decide on Panama as your home? Just wondering since Fort Lauderdale is such a great boating related community.
Keep on keepin on.
