thesnort, that is a great question. I am looking to buy and move aboard in the next 6-12 months, and am beginning to think about living aboard. I've lived a minimalist existence several past cycles, 6 years in the military and building a cabin in the woods as a retreat and homestead. I remember most fondly the timeless seasons I spent alone (half the time) each year clearing forest, building a cabin and growing my food. I imagine cruising much like that in terms of pacing, with less hump work but still demanding a constant attention to adjustment and maintaining systems, with diving, fishing and touring thrown in. And all this without a watch on my wrist.

I hope to find some fine thoughtful wisdom in the thread to put me ahead of my game.
