Re: Downside of living aboard

It's ironic that I might have less experience with this question due to having lived aboard for well over forty years. Having all that I own on board my boat and never having had a house leaves me with little to compare with living aboard; however, living aboard since '72 has allowed my to see many people move aboard and then move off. It's been my experience that most that don't do well aboard are those that are moving aboard to escape. They wan't to escape the "rat race", high costs, a failing relationship, career disappointments, etc. Those that succeed are more often those that are drawn by an excitment with self-reliance, independence and adventure that comes with hard work.
