Re: Downside of living aboard

Actually, there is a fourth type of liveaboard (if there must be labels), which is what I'm doing presently.

Having spent a year refitting and preparing, I then cruised until I stopped to work for a while. Now that I've re-retired, the urge to go back out isn't as strong, especially as I essentially have to go through much of the refit process again (the time and effort I don't mind, the money though is a factor).

So, I find myself in a very good financial situation staying put for now. Thing is, everyone does what they do for a reason that is good for them. Whether it's good enough for anyone else, doesn't matter. For myself, I don't really give a hoot what anyone else does with their boat. There's more than enough people around here worrying about who motors to much, who stays at the dock too much, who doesn't trim their sails enough, etc..

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
