Let me see. You live on an island with a low rate of income tax and low rate of VAT. You also enjoy a low rate of fuel duty and have a boat. Hmm.

I'm early retired, fit and healthy. Do you need a butler?

I'd love a butler, but sadly unless you were locally born or you've lived on our island for at least 5 yrs, I'd have to give preference to a local without getting special dispensation from the powers that be. Population control they call it (an alternative to the free contraceptives that most other countries might use!)

Errm, one thing I forgot to mention, you'd need at least 200k to buy a half decent one bed flat here and half a million for a good 3 bed semi. And that's an island wide price, you can't go and live in a cheaper parish and save a few quid.

It's not always as rosy as we try and make out . Asset rich, cash poor.

I get around 1 mile per litre at around 23kts in calm (but not flat) conditions. It uses a fair bit less if I drop to 20tks though.
