Re: Considering doing Live Aboard. (Need Advise)

I have lived aboard a 42 foot trimaran with some home comforts, namely a gas got water system and electric heating and cooling, but I lived on a berth with water and power supplied. It was like living in an apartment at a fraction of the rent and with far better views--and one did not need a car as I could walk to the shops and the pub was within staggering distance. I loved it--especially the bit where I could pull in breakfast while slurping on an evening beer or two--or three----------n.

There were intermittent moments of concern though--when cyclones loom one has to escape to the nearest wooded mangrove lined creek and tie off with nylon warps--and set anchors. Cyclones are the only grit in the Vaseline of an otherwise idyllic existence.
