I am comfortable and gaining confidence as a liveaboard heading into year 2.
Being in that position now of working my way thru a divorce and moving to Hawaii as my next duty station. I looked at rentals and always found myself wanting to be as close to the ocean as possible and then realized I have always loved the sea and love sleeping onboard the ship. Probably why I have 11 years sea time out of 16 years in the Navy. So with that said and some sailing lessons under my belt and being mechanically inclined I decided come end of December I will start the next chapter of my life with the thing I love the most the ocean and a sailboat. Thank you all for all your inspiring advice!!!
