Re: The Live aboard dream right out of college?
'great post by Joethecobbler! I still find it tough to draw the line between those that "go" and those that "don't". I guess it's because I don't know to which group I belong. Fresh out of college, my wife and I bought a sloop to live aboard and sailed to Florida, but we needed money and raised two children and stayed employed for the following thirty years. We continued to live aboard successively larger boats and we cruised to the Bahamas in the summers. For the last ten years we've been cruising from Maine to the Bahamas or Keys on our boat and off to the Nile, Amazon, Ireland and the Galapagos on other peoples boats. This coming June we will have lived aboard for forty years. Did I "go" or did I "not go"? ......I couldn't say. Take care and joy, Aythya crew
