Re: Chasing my dream

Brad,
Welcome to the asylum and congrats on inheriting a dream. Your 24 is a small boat to live aboard for any length of time. I haven't done it but I'll say that a week on a 25 footer gets cramped. Probably the best thing you can do is upgrade from an icebox to a fridge and install shore power. I'm assuming that you have a slip with power. The next thing would be to install a bimini with screen sides and some exterior lighting. This would add 30% to your living area and give a place to entertain in when it rains. Be sure to consult a qualified electrician on this one. One wrong ground and we're reading about you on Darwin Awards.

Don
