A DREAM to SAIL

I need money

Hi guys, my name is Jeff. I am the proud owner of a 27' Hunter sailboat. The boat was a gift from my parents when I graduated from college in December 2012. I had this great plan after college, I'd work for two years and save just enough, so I could venture out and sail the world (or at least part of it). But, when I graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in anthropology, I couldn't find a better job. All the decent paying opportunities in my field required a master's degree and I did not want to go back to school. It took me nine years to work my way through my BA. I always paid my tuition cash to stay debt free. So, it was necessary for me to work a lot. I worked at a Sweet Bay Grocery Store, I handled the circulation of the USF newspaper, and I mowed a few yards on the side. All in all, I worked about 70-80 hours a week and went to my classes top of that.

I've been out of school for two years now and I've undergone a few changes. I left Sweet Bay for Publix and on July 30th I left Publix also. I left the USF newspaper back in March of this year, and I married my wife on May 24. She's not much on leaving the harbor, but, she is a sweetheart and has told me whatever dream I have I should follow it. She's very supportive and that's part of the reason why I married her. However, I'm 30 years old and getting no younger. I know that if I am to go after my dream, I must do it now; because in time I am sure I'll have a family. I think it would be almost impossible to go sailing then. It's hard enough to leave just my wife, much less kids; which is what I'm writing this. I'd love to go sail, at least one time before I settle down completely. My whole life I've been chasing this moment and I don't want it to escape me. I've got about $1500 saved right now and that's enough to get me two new boat batteries, an E-Perv (just in case), and supply me with enough camera film, water and food for about a month. I'd love to go a little longer. I truly don't think my trip will be possible if I don't raise anything. But, it's a dream and it's once in a lifetime. I hope you guys can help me make it happen. Thanks in advance, and thanks for reading!
