Great Lakes to the Carribean

Hello friends,

My name is Stephen. For a while now I have had the dream of buying a sailboat and one day sailing around the Caribbean. However, with a mortgage, renovations, and covid, that dream is out of reach. So, I have started this fundraiser in hopes of making a start towards that dream.

I am hoping to buy a boat between 30 and 40ft in the price range of 30 to 40 thousand dollars. Beyond that I am expecting a boat at that price to require 10 to 15 thousand dollars in maintenance before she is ready to sail.

With a home base in Michigan my plan is to buy a boat, fix her up here, sail her around the great lakes for a while, and then in a year or two sail her down to the Caribbean. I would love to be able to make a vlog documenting my experiences on the amazing adventures I would have with this boat.

Thank you for any support you can give.
