We started on a 27' Coranado, with a 2 adultls, one teenager, and one 8 year old. We also had 2 70 lbs golden retrievers. We did this for a year. It wasn't as hard as it sounds. Everything had its place and we kept everything in its place. My family was coming from a 5,000 square foot home, so it was certainly an adjustment. Looking back, those were some of the best times.... We didn't know enough to hesitate...so we didn't...Just go for it!
We are back for another venture, and getting yet another sailboat ready to go. We plan to leave next spring, but are already living aboard with our dogs. Follow the adventures of the dogs via their blog. (an invention to entertain the folks back home) We'd love to see you follow us. Encouragement of any kind is always welcome!
