Re: Why liveaboard cruisers don't race:

I drove over the road in a semi truck for over 25 years here in the states, my truck had a sleeper berth on it with TV, Microwave, Refrigerator, and a lot of other stuff, I used to see people in RV's and think to myself about how they pay a ton of money to do that and I got paid over $100k a year after my costs to do more or less the same thing. (I owned my own truck, so I made a little more than a company driver would, but they make around $50-$75k a year).
Now I am semi retired....a pun haha, and I am purchasing a live aboard sailboat sometime here very soon and I figure the living arrangements will be about the same, only more spacious. I have owned sailboats and large power boats in the past, just never lived aboard before.
