Have you bought the boat or the land? I’m curious what the boat, in particular, will run you both initially and in upkeep. I’m a big advocate of owning farmable land that has its own water.
Montserrat has an extremely active volcano that killed a lot of people, doesn’t it? It seems to me that there may be a good reason why you can still buy that land cheaply! You might be able to tap it for geothermal energy, though…
Boat was bought in 2011 after the last financial crisis. Paid 20 cents on the dollar for it …lots of good deals on boat especially if you are a hands on type… 60 ft aluminum built in 2003. Had it in storage until I retired in 2016. Now I’m using it and in the process of upgrading as a more seaworthy home. I do almost all my own work even welding in the stern tube and strut bearing.
As to Montserrat the central hills and the silver hills were never in danger… washing yes but that’s it. I bought in the least safe of the safe zone while the volcano was still glowing red.
Now it’s gone inactive and the last time it was dormant was for 400 years.
Yes I’m a doer and risk taker.
Isn’t it time for action not just words.
Willing to help worthy people get started.
