Re: Downside of living aboard

I lived aboard for nearly 20 years and I do miss it. For maybe half of that time, I worked and did some traveling in my engineering job of consulting so I was not on the boat 24/7 However, I've spent winters there and while it did limit my ability to go on day sails which I did quite often during other times of the year, I still enjoyed it. If you enjoy backpacking into wilderness areas then living aboard will be a luxury. I still have the boat and get to it maybe twice a year for sailing the Chesapeake and exploring new areas and miss the sailing. But I also enjoy living in the mountains and hiking and biking. The most depressing thing that I observed while living aboard was the ever increasing regulations which seem to limit your freedom.
