I moved aboard my 27 foot Cheoy Lee last month. It's a little tight but I am adapting well. I really love this boat, she has a lot character and needs a lot of work. I don't cook, except for the good ole George Forman grill, but right now I have no refigeration so eating out is the norm. I have an ice box but the ice only lasts a little less than two days when it is hot outside. I keep my "going out" clothes in my truck and I find the biggest nusiance is taking a shower; here in Everett it costs 50 cents for 5 minutes if you want a hot shower.
Being single and not very picky about where I live and eat, I find I can manage pretty well aboard this small boat. I am looking for ways and ideas to increase my living and storage space a little, like removing a settee, but I don't want to dork this boat up very much by doing drastic things to the inside.
