Mate,
Definitely the wrong time of the year.
You would be flat out getting any insurance.
Best time to go is after cyclone season and once the SE Trades have started to blow.
Think of heading off after April/May.
Long term charter may be expensive and buying is a reasonable option but selling is not easy.
It is a buyers market at present so unless you are prepared to hold on to the vessel for a year or so you would probably take a reasonable loss on your purchase price.
Cheers
Benn
