I hear you on the sailboat!! Unfortunately, I am locked into the Great Lakes with my boat. I imagine that the St. Lawrence would be unnavigable in a

Some of the hardest times, if global apocalyptic SHTF happens, are going to occur in the first year.
Float around in the Great Lakes that first year and you'll do fine. After most people have gone to Darwin, you can creep quietly along, with greater
confidence of not being interfered with in sneaking out to the deep blue.
By the time you make it to deep blue, or whatever color it might be, you'll have likely found and adopted the use of more than one boat,
hermit-crabbing from one shell to another along the way.
My goal is to find and acquire a Nautor Swan similar this.
. I don't have $10 million in
the bank to afford one, (as pictured in the link, boat isn't outfitted proper with solar gels, wind turbines, and dinks on davitsand other such) but,
should SHTF in any sort of ways as imagined in countless fictional imaginings, money will be useless.
I'm usually no more than a day or three walk from somewhere on the third coast (Gulf of Mex) where there's marinas aplenty.
If I have to start with a sunfish, so be it, but, while everyone is headed to the hills to starve due to over competition with each other for
survival, I'll have the sun, wind, and sea, with the occasional sparkling beach for toes in the sand.
