Retire Onto A Sailboat
I early-retired in March 2001,
bought a sailboat to live on, and have cruised Florida,
the Bahamas, east coast USA, the Mississippi river, and now down into the Caribbean.
[Update: stopped cruising in 2015, sold boat end of 2017.]
This site is my "database"; it shows my thought
processes and much of the data I've collected.
It's a work-in-progress, and some data is contradictory
because it comes from various people with different points of view.
Please send any comments to me
