Hi Dave

I read about your concerns, although I am not retired, I do live aboard an Ericson 34T. I am planning my next purchase, most likely a Hans Christian 38+. My only concern with my present sailboat is that there is a lmited space available for suits and ties. When you will be in Florida, give me call and arange a visit. If you are interested in my 34T, I can make you an excellent deal no intermediate involved. If you want to see pictures let me know.

Good luck

Jean-Marc

Well, you do have almost all the answers now except one or two that I must add. Firstly, get headroom!!and an inch or two more than that!Next get WOOD!!By living aboard, most likely in a marina you''ll have all the time you''ll need to learn how to paint and varnish.The difference is irrefutable. F''glass has no soul. To live in a wooden boat is to live inside a tree...in essence.To live in a GRP boat is to live in a Lego. Don''t waste your time on plastic.Also, you''ll get much better value for dollar in wood especially as you''ve noticed on Yachtworld.com. $200,000.00 will get you an 110 ft''r . Next buy AMERICAN!! If you need to you can get a six-pack license and do charters as income...cheese, you''ll BE living there!And lastly, get a crew. Send for some orphans, or waifs or refugees or some people that would give their lives to live.....that will give you a purpose........ Rev. Mike

Hi Guys
(I don''t even know if this goes all the way back up thread???) and this site is driving me crazy with repeating myself.

Re - you don''t know if you should ''do it'' - DON''T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT - DO IT!!!!

If you would like to contact me by e-amil, I can offer you some stuff about who, when, where, why, how much, etc. I''ve been living aboard for over 22 months and have sailed around Cuba, Florida, Exuams and back to Abaco and I have also been stationary (on the hook for months at a time). Ask away and I''ll tell you what I know..........

Dazeoff: I DO plan to liveaboard, and would very much appreciate hearing about your life living aboard and the things you''ve experienced and learned.
Books are good, but there''s nothing like first-hand, personal advice.

My email address is: wildheart001@yahoo.com

Thanks!

Dear Dazeoff,

Well, there''s no doubt about your sentiments! I would like to talk to you via e-mail about some of your specific experiences. The problem of what boat to buy is real high on the list of questions to answer. If you''d drop me a line at dpiercejr@cs.com, I''d appreciate it.

Thanks,

Dave...
