Life aboard a 24'''' sloop?
I used to live on a 21-footer and it was great for the summer but a bit rough in winter. The part I couldn''t deal with, no matter what the boat size is, the condensation in winter. I would recommend good insulation or better yet, head south.
I now live on a 32-foot in the Mediterranean and it''s just about perfect for one or two. It''s storage that I''m running short of - will need to have a clear out sale one of these days.LOL.
By the way, I''m looking for crew for the summer if you want change of scenery. Check out my website: www.seagypsysailing.com
