Help…Logistics of Moving Aboard!

One last thought about living aboard. You mentioned living aboard instead of cruising. We plan to cruise. But for living aboard a sailboat is a poor choice... We have met several people who live aboard houseboats. These houseboats are about the size of a double wide house trailer. One guy ran his business out of his. These boats have all the comforts and are a way to see a lot of protected water. We love sailing and want to cruise so a houseboat is not an option. But we are 50 when we are 65 we may decide a houseboat is perfect. A trawler is another option if you want to cross some blue water. I met a family in Texas that had lived aboard for several years. They had cruised the islands and gulf coasts. He said that he had enough range to go to europe if he wanted. But a trawler won''t have the comforts of a large houseboat.
