Bug out idea/question

I am not a prepper but since moving back to Long Island to take care of elderly family it has made me wonder about bugging out in a “bad” situation.

1. Assume health and finances are taking care of.
2. Living somewhere near large body of water (Long Island or South Florida)
3. Excluding a WW III scenario cause obviously there would be a whole other set of concerns.

Rather than bugout to a rural area or bug in somewhere in the suburbs what do you think about bugging out in a sailboat? From South Florida you could get to the Bahamas or most anywhere in the Caribbean to stock up on supplies or even Latin America. I know there are pirates etc but seems like this would give you some great advantages. You can carry fresh water and purify some as well. You could fish for food or simply go resupply somewhere in the Caribbean and buy yourself time and distance from the problem.

Just curious what you all think about the viability of such a plan.

Here on Long Island (LI) there are plenty of anti-gun people. Some of my family included. It wasn’t much of an issue when I moved up here since I have to establish residency of a year before I can have a gun here. Even then there is no chance of a carry permit whatsoever.
Not a chance in Hail that I would move to a socialist paradise like where you live without kicking and screaming, literally. Never, let those sheetheads discover what happens the hard way when a disaster happens and the police are no where to be found.
