We did things a little differently. We lived life on land and enjoyed it as much as we could. We built our savings and assets in the interest of purchasing a marine business o run into our retirement. Once we had enough and went through the process of buying a marina(which did not work out) we decided to sell everything, buy a nice boat and move aboard. The 5 year plan which started a year ago is to get the boat the way we like it, learn it inside and out, increase our savings and then shove off for at least 5 years without having to work. If we find a low stress way to make money while cruising we will take advantage of it especially if it allows us to extend the trip.

You can get some more info from my lousy blog below.
