Re: Thinking about living aboard

thanks for the the enthusiastic and rapid response guys.

I manage a causal restaurant on the island where i live, I do most of my eating/ cooking there now, so i doubt i would be doing virtually any cooking on the boat. the marina on the island is live aboard friendly, i just need to get in touch with them about getting a slip. not sure how much they charge.

as for lifestyle, what would you define the "lifestyle" of a live aboard to be? minimalist? carefree? what?

The big draw for me is the idea of ownership. At the end of the day the boat will be mine. If i love it i keep at it, if i dont, i can always sell it.

sidney777 i know what you mean about taking ordinary things for granted. When i was 16 i moved out of my moms house and in to a little fifteen foot camper in my dads yard. the thing was not in good shape. but i made it home and did laundry at my grandmothers, stored most of my clothes in the camper, and used the "facilities" in my dads house. it was great! Actually i kinda forgot about my camper days until just now; good times.

thanks again for the input. keep it coming.
