Im 20, work as a cook.
gradually learning to not spend $ on stuff not needed, have the willpower of an ox, and relatively a poor dude but with steady income and the usual bills.

Research research, and more research.. but no experience cept a 14' force 5.

however im super determined to live aboard at the local marina and i would like to purchase a slight fixer upper. prefer a catalina 27 due to their wide product and parts. i know about how much i want to spend ($6000-7500) and i know i want to work on this boat like its all i have.. cuz it will be. It will just be myself with the occasional visitor, for days i want to cruise.
Still want to take classes, or just go out and get the feel for sailing a bigger (than 14') boat.

anyways, sound possible? i think so if i save enough $. needs to be soon though, however thats all on my part. anyone been in my shoes? or have words of wisdom to share? open to all criticism, dont want to jump the gun.


thanks!
Come on down to Key West. I have a Trip Columbia 26 for $1000 buck's. You can live on the hook for free and work in town. It's warm all year, alway's sailing season. It's young dude live aboard city down here. Tons of sailor girls, bar/ rest. jobs dyi boatyatds, I made a small fortune barbacking down here. I can probably get you a job bus'n tables right now.
