Help…Logistics of Moving Aboard!

Ed

You have asked two questions: 1) how do I get rid of all my "crap"? 2) how to find the boat?

After doing it myself and watching may others prepare to live aboard, the answer to your first question is easy. You simply go thru all of your belonging and remove everything that: a) is a family heirloom and can''t be replaced b)items that will be used onboard. EVERYTHING else should be sold, given to your kids or donated to charity. Everyone I know that decided to store home furnishings, etc, later regretted doing so. When (if) you return to land, your tastes, priorities and needs will have changed. It''s best to start from scratch.


As to your second question, you need to provide more info. What is your sailing experience, do you have your choices narrowed down to a few boats, etc.
