Re: The Live aboard dream right out of college?

It can't be done.
turn back---
you can't afford it and you don't have enough experience ,training or resilience.
You'll never make it.
It will break you financially and ruin your life forever !
Just re-enlist and work in a cubicle or a menial job and pay rent until you can no longer work and all your dreams die.
Then you will be safe and secure.
Or buy a house and land that you have little or no real actual control over your neighbors or any future taxes or use laws and pay 3-4 times the puchase price after interest for 30+ years.
Forget any youthful dreams and only work and pay, work and pay until old age comes and you can wonder forever "what if?"

Or you could just keep reading and studying what countless others have already done and learn through their experiences, find a boat you like and sail it wherever you feel you want to, until your satisfied or bored w/ it.
I occasionally see free boats on craigs list and have looked at a few,just for fun , (and because it's my addiction) some are junk, some just need a new owner.
The choice is yours. I already know which path I choose, I'm sailing !!!
