Re: Tips for Living Aboard Catalina 27'

sashlyk,

You asked and were provided with some opinions. Even if you didn't get the answers you expected, name calling is totally unwarranted, not cool and against forum rules.

No I lived in my Mommy's Basement playing video games until they died of cancer and left me the house and a trust fund. I am very good at Space Invaders since I have spent 30 years practicing. When not playing video games or spamming forums I like to get out on the water.This gives me privacy to take care of those issues that people like me have because we have no girlfriends.

Why would I live in a Art place? Wouldnt the Paint get on everything?

I've lived in pretty small spaces in the past. I'm just not personally all that into the ultra-minimalist thing.

If you haven't yet, you really should look through CK's blog (link above). She had that thing fixed up very nicely. She could definitely give you some tips.

PS - you're a spunky one.

Re: Tips for Living Aboard Catalina 27'

I would think that one of the top priorities in moving aboard a C27 would be to maximize the use of the cockpit area for additional living space from below. An awning or full Bimini would do the trick. Living in the Bay area could present a challange to having warm and cozy evenings aboard the boat but it could be done.
A small space heater (emphasis on small) will keep you warm and dry at night when the fog rolls in.
Storage under the V berth is a great place for those items that are a bit larger and don't need to access frequently.
On the C27 I would make use of the Quarterberth as an area to put bins of ready accessable items (like a shoe rack)
The C27 has a nice folding table in the salon to put out of your way while down below.
Make certain you have a good laptop to surf and stream your movies. Personally I would not even consider a TV onboard.
Have fun and let us know how you come out!

Re: Tips for Living Aboard Catalina 27'

Hage - I'm not sure I see so much negativity in the first few posts. At least not enough to warrant suddenly dropping idiot babies on their heads.

What do you see as the problem prior to that bomb?

You are smart - others, not so much, and clearly don't do anything but say stupid stuff on sailing forums.

Alrighty. I think the useful suggestions have been exhausted.
