Advise to those moving aboard?
Attitude is the most important aspect of living aboard and cruising and only you can control yours.
Remember, it''s supposed to be fun. (But not at anyone else''s expense-be considerate and aware that noise carries.)
Be open to change (your changing, the weather changing, your neighbors changing), be flexible in your body and your mind.
All the other stuff really will fall into place.
Also, adults tend to think they should be able to do something new on the first try. It''s not true, we still have to learn how to do some things. Give yourself a chance to learn.
