Re: Considering doing Live Aboard. (Need Advise)

I had a bucc 240 when I was single as well as when it was just the two of us. worked out fine. had a oven,stove,head ,refrig ,etc. standing headroom 6' sailed fine soal draft and a9.9 outboard elec start and solar. I've always heated w/ wood it's priced affordably.
I miss that bucc 240. I built a dual axle railor for it I could launch and retrieve it at a boat slip w/ a 1/2 ton truck and it rocked. I just got a larger crew and ten foot-itis.
now I GOTTA go to a yard to haul.
I'd get another 240 in a minute if I got rid of the 320 it would be alot cheaper to use as well as maintain and store when not in use.
many of my cruising pals are going tralerable for the same reasons, pocket cruisers.
if you want lite air performance raise more sail area. or sail a light boat, like a bucc.
