Re: Tips for Living Aboard Catalina 27'

I think the people on here are just concerned that you havent thought anything through, as opposed to 'dense'. When thinking of living aboard, there are so MANY things to consider. You must consider all the things that you would if you were moving into a house, and more- Where are you going to get your power from? Your heat? how will you refrigerate food? Where will you go to the bathroom? How will you shower? Where will you get your drinking water? Ill tell you now it gets real old, real fast toting water and gas for a generator EVERY DAY, and that is how often you will need to do it. Have you found a marina that allows live a boards? I will also mention that a 27 footer does not allow much living space at all. Storage is the least of your concerns. I have a 26' with 6' headroom, but I would never consider living on it-based on size alone. Good luck regardless, if you have worked these issues out, are committed and think you will be happy, go for it.
