Moved aboard 9/2010 in Portland, Maine. Sold the house, one car and most everything else summer of 2010. Living debt free and saving for "the cruise" to start in 2-3 years.

I would highly recommend living on your newly acquired boat and coastal cruising from your home base for a minimum of one year to be sure you know the boat inside and out and all systems are up to snuff.

We purchased a pristine '97 model boat that was actively being cruised and I still work on it every weekend to learn all the systems and replace things I do not like. Part of this is just how I am. Always trying to improve things.
