Re: Starting From Scratch...
I've got a couple living, or more accurately camping (for the summer) 200 yards off my dock on a Pearson 26 he bought last year for 400 bucks.
I think it's sleeping bags and blow up mattress as until this spring it didn't even have hatch boards.
The boat has no motor, a 45w solar panel and I think he takes his car battery back and forth when he rows his aluminum jon boat in to get water.
Livable is open to definition. These are young healthy college kids playing house in the summer.
Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
