Two newbies, y'all probably get a lot of these.

Hi, y'all, I'm new to the forum, and nearly new to boating. My wife and I are doing the thing many dream about, selling our house and 99 and 44/100% of the crud in it and planning to buy a boat to live aboard.

She's got salt in her blood but no experience...her Dad was a frogman and career Navy, her granddad was a charter boat captain.

Me, I'm ex-Navy but have no sailing skills to speak of, just electronics and engines.

We're looking to buy a 35-38 foot motorsailer on the Tennesee River or Gulf coast.

I'm not asking any dumb questions yet, just introducing ourselves; I'll save the dumb questions for when we begin to move on acquiring the boat. So hi, and we're looking forward to joining the liveaboard community someday soon.

Cheers!
Mike and Katie (Mike typing)

Hey Mike, Welcome aboard to you and your wife.

That is definitely the dream (and life) of many here.

One thing I recommend is that you and your wife start out by taking some sailing courses. Once you've got the basics you can easily apply them to which ever boat you end up buying.

Glad to hear you've got the income thing figured out I'm still looking for a way to pay the bills working online. If you don't mind me asking, what does your wife do?

Chris
