Re: For those that moved from land to sea

I did it in phases -

1) decide to buy boat and save money to buy it in cash - 5 years - I did buy half of a Catalina 27 and sail it 100+ days a year during this phase. Lived on it weekends.
2) buy the boat, sell everything except house, and move aboard - 1 year
3) rent out house for 2 years, then decide to sell it - 2 years
4) sell the house - 1 day (your mileage may vary)

My original plan was to keep the house as a rental property long-term. It was reading horror stories of other cruisers on this site and blogs that changed my mind.
