difficult....

Hello Mikieg,

I met a lot of liveaboards before I settled down, and I remember mainly two types:
The ones, who had financed everything in advance, or had permanent income without working, like for instance old-age pensioners.
And many ones who struggled. They had planned to make their living doing this and that while being on cruise, but in most cases this turned out to be hardly possible. You can find stuck and frozen sailors in many ports around the world.

Sorry having to say that, but I think it would be better to save enough money to survive at least one year before setting sails. And this includes reserves for boat repairs...
