the dream has to be shared...and she may not be ready, or have the same priorities in boats that you do.

liveaboard is hard. And if the boat is not set up in a way that she feels comfortable, even more so. Marinas mean different things to each of you, and anchoring out a whole new set of challenges she or the two of you may not be up to, yet.

I am lucky, my wife had really only two requirements...queen size berth that she can get in and out of, without climbing or crawling or disturbing me AND a place, well lit to read and do needle work...almost anything else was negotiable.

If you have not done so, I would suggest listening to what SHE wants in a boat, and where she wants to be on said boat.
