I'm joining because I can't find any answers for a particular question.
I'm 24 years old, I'm a college student. My dad used to build sailboats and draw them and everything. I've always dreamed to having one, particularly living on one. I am willing to give up the amenities like a big TV, stuff like that. I'd really like to downsize my life really. But I don't want to give up things like showers, and a stove. Propane is fine, but I'm getting too particular in this intro.
I make 300 bucks a week. I know that sailboats are very expensive. I was wondering, are there people who own them who rarely use them who would maybe "lease" them out for live-aboard? Like $300 a month plus regular maintence (I can dive and clean the hull, I'm a natural woodworker, etc..).
Are there legality issues there? Insurance?
Again, I'm getting way ahead of myself. I've dreamt of living on one for a long time. I figure if I had to spend $450 or $500 a month on an apartment or house rental, I could just do what I Really wanted instead..
