Re: Has anybody gone the sub £5k route for a liveaboard?

I've been dealing with the same 28 foot sailboat since I was 8 years old ( it was grandpa's) I took over ownership at 18. I've been broke, I've been cash rich and all the other states of being one goes through from 18 to 41. It's sunk on me twice and I even sold it once. I've re-rigged it 4 times and been through countless sails. I still live paycheck to paycheck, and I've found that you can do one thing at a time. One wire a week on the re-rig, one hallyard or line with each pay check. If it's something you need a lot of all at once you can find salvaged,used or bulk, but you can alway's find a way. keep your needs simple and wants even more so.
