what stays, what goes?
partner and i have been actively looking to join the lifestyles of the live-a-board/ cruisers for quite some time now. i believe i have read almost every entry on this bb and all other bb''s i''ve been able to find, still trying to discover the fastest and easiest way to make the transition from 4000 sq.feet and 3 stories to a 38''-43'' live aboard. I have no problem giving up all of the STUFF that one accumulates thru the years but more importantly; what do i keep to transfer too the boat? dishes,silver,towels,(art and crystal) or do these types of items get tossed too violently to be practical.Most all of our cruising for a while will be coastal and we are certainly looking for any imput as to which boat you believe to be the best suited to this type of cruising? thanks in advance for any help.
