Your revised plan sounds pretty good to me - living aboard while learning the boat, improving the systems, some time working and some sailing ... Although we had a little more budget to start (there were two of us, after all) that's exactly what we did and it worked fantastically well for us. By the time we left for the Bahamas we'd upgraded/reworked every boat system, knew the boat inside out & how she sailed, had a very wonderful 9-month cruise. Currently relaxing back in the Chesapeake and planning to head out again this autumn. You CAN do this too! Looking forward to seeing you on the water.
