Re: Where are the younger people?

Well im laying my my V berth right now with a fan blowing on me direct and the forward hatch and both ports open and its still pretty warm. My 80 watt solar panal never seems to make battery voltage green and no seems are trying to invade my privy space.
Cruising and liveaboard two different things imo. Of course my boat is not fancy with AC refrigeration satellite tv shower ect ect.
ill stick it out two or three years. Then im selling this boat and moving back on land fo eva.
prolly will buy a sunfish or something for sailing. Will never live aboard again ever. Its not my passion. Yet ive done it, built the boat, started ocean sailing, and will do a summer or two in the Bahamas. That will be enough for me.
Why dont young people cruise? Bc we cant afford island packets. Living aboard for us is like living out of a pop up. It aint grand.
