They have raised my rent again and I am also looking for a live aboard boat... A sail boat in about the 40 to 65k range. finding a marina here in central Louisiana is another story. Will need to find one fairly close to Lafayette.
I have working the sea commercially since Noah was a cabinboy and can handle about any type of boat out there. But a ketch or Schooner where the sail plan is broken into smaller sails would be best for me.
Am semi-retired with a small Navy & SS retirement checks coming in and working three weeks a month now as an instructor of 100/200 ton master/mate course for those who want to up grade. My own license is 1600 ton Master / 2nd Mate unlimited Oceans with ARPA Radar, GMDSS and the required STCW for those who work on vessels over 300 net tons. So the experience is there... So am looking at various vessels...closer to turn key than project boats.
Not to sure about FG seeing most of my time have been on steel vessels...
Have Fun and Enjoy
