Advise to "newbie" - back on track
Without being combative! your question is much broader than one would think at first glance:examples:
Moving aboard and living at the dock entails
one set of parameters.
Moving aboard and living on the hook another.
Living aboard while actually cruising another
as a example:How big is your boat?Where are you going?for how Long?What are your resources,money wise?Can you replace money items with skills and make do?
Before anyone can really intelligently give you the answer to so broad of a question you have to set tight parameters on the questions.If you can do that you then are in the position to as form options to your own conclusions!
If you need help in some specific area I''d be glad to help and I''m certain others would too!After Feb 15th I''ll be offshore!
