Todays the day, we move aboard!!

I can't believe that we are finally doing it, after 1 1/2 yrs of thinking about it, selling our house, thinking about it some more, today we are moving aboard and will motor over to our marina, which is about an hour away. We are not sailing as this is a new route for us and we do not want any distractions. Ha

We cleaned the boat on Tues, moved everything on board yesterday and today we untie the lines and head out.

We have a bottle of champagne chilling, which we'll have once we arrive safely at our new slip.

May the summer be awesome!!

I almost still can't believe this is happening!

Wish the best to you and yours.Share your experiences. I'm moving on the boat in 9d. Don't yet have your courage. Still have the house as backup.

Re: Todays the day, we move aboard!!

Thanks everyone! It's been a long day...but we are here, we didn't go around in circles or have to call TowBoatUS or the Coast Guard. I think that means we had a good day. Haha
