Retire Onto A Sailboat
Site Map        Home
Search my site:
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. Contact me, Bill Dietrich.
