Great Retirement advice

by Rodney
(USA)

I have been investigating retirement options as I will be retiring in the next 10-12 years.


I know early planning. I grew up on a farm and was considering cheap land in South America but lately have been drawn to sailboat living as in is in my blood.

My grandfather was merchant marine and long shore man and my father was a sea captain and I am distantly related to the infamous Captain Kidd.

After spending several years in the Caribbean cruising to many islands I discovered I enjoy sailing to the Islands more than the Islands themselves.

My retirement income will be around 2,000 a month.

Although I would prefer not to dock during hurricane season but rather sail to safer seas.

Thanks for the great info and good luck.

I don't know about the rest of you, but when I read Rodney's remark ("hopefully I'll be alone by then"), I began to feel very bad for Rodney and I am not a very emotional person. I can't imagine looking forward to being alone as I feel that having a partner enhances every shared moment both in real time and in the memories created. All the best to Rodney in the New Year and beyond.
