Re: Considering doing Live Aboard. (Need Advise)

if the price is right, go for it. i have one and i have no problems. if you are conservative and can plan well, storage is ample. single handed sailing is easy for this boat. take the ASA 101 Basic Keelboat Sailing course. headroom is tight. i am 6ft. i leave the hatch open
in the summer and have plenty of room. in the winter either get a canopy or get used to stooping over. if you want to spend the money you can raise the overhead a few inches.
as you get used to it, you'll get a better idea on how to improve upon it. good luck and good sailing.
