Tips for Living Aboard Catalina 27'
 
Hi, I will be moving on to a 27' Catalina in a few days and I have never done this! I am wondering if anyone has any tips for storing things on the boat, orginization systems etc. Much appreciated!

Around post 34 or so she then goes into what she did to her Cat 27 to turn it into a liveaboard.

Best of luck.

hmmm, you are moving "in a few days"??? That does not give you much time to prep does it.

I own a C27 and when it comes to thinking about living on it full-time, all I can say is....you're a much braver chick than I am.

You really should look up the member cktalons on here and read her blog. She's done it very successfully on a 30-footer I think.

yeah, I'm looking more for decorative storage advise, but apparently people who live on boats are not very smart.

Can u say Storage bin? Think Van in Parking lot.Roll up your clothes. Assign a number/letter to every storage nook in boat and write where u put what in a notebook or puter program etc. Fill pillows with sweaters etc. Buy Saltpeter.

I don't have that much stuff - I am thinking about building a shelving unit for shoes and whatnot. How are people on here so dense! It is not hard to live in a small space. Ever lived in a studio??!

If you have only a shopping cart full of stuff to begin with then look on Sailfar and other small boat Project oriented websites for possible solutions as well as the Catalina owners group site for specific advice on your model.

why woudl i fill my pillows with sweaters? and number things? It's a small boat. You people sound like you live in a bad version of a trailor park. this is the worst advice for something so simple
