Trey Benefield of Blue Moon Adventures talks about how he wanted to finance his big cruise by buying a boat in the Eastern Caribbean and selling it in Australia for a profit. He talks about the first part of his trip in this episode from buying the boat in St. Martin and his transit of the Panama Canal. His college student daughter was his crew member on this trip and they survived 30 foot waves and gale conditions on their way.
