Been some talk of having a bail out boat lately. Fine idea for the open sea but the 1st question you need to ask yourself, " Do I have the sailing experience and know how to safely sail the seas? Can I find the right boat? Do I have the funds to equip a boat for a 3 to 4 week sail? and Where do I start?".
Last question 1st. Finding a sail boat that fits your budget is the hardest part as even a sweet deal will still set you back a few thousand in outfitting cost, but look in the back of any sailing magazine for yacht broker's websites, Craig's List, don't laugh! there are some killer deals to be found there, Latitude 38, and so on. For sale by owner CAN be a deal if the owner has health issues, just be careful and don't overlook the Mexican yacht brokers.
