Hi new here

Hi everyone,
I'm Karen and I'm new here and joined because we are considering a lifestyle change after job loss and will be looking for encouragement and/or information about living and life on a sailboat.

Oh good I have a few ills right now, I think I can find the answers to most of my questions here. This site looks fantastic for anything you'd want to know about sailing, boats and living aboard.
Thanks for the shout out Smackdaddy

Welcome. I, too, just joined this forum and have learned a lot thus far.

I'll be a weekend cruiser when I get my boat out.

Hi Karen.

I'm also new here. Once the weather warms up I'll be on the water most days instead of this keyboard.

Welcome Monark. Im also working towards a liveaboard lifestyle.

Im currently searching for a catamaran that will suit my liveaboard needs.

This site has been of great benefit to me and has so much information available.

Im sure you will enjoy your time here.

Hey Karen -- spices. Can I say more? spices are the key to happiness! make every meal a banquet. Whoa --- first get the boat. I myself am working on a similar transition.. I have decided that if it doesn't repel water and is not hi-tech clothing -- out, out, out with it.. a difficult task being the the fashion-whore that I am (I NEED THOSE FAUX FUR PANTS!!!!) poo... After several days in the "urban" outback I figured out that I only need this "x" and this "x" item of clothing... I know that "all=ya=all" are reading this and are thinking..."wAAaa" but it is the truth.

I have a very diverse corporate wardrobe that will not fit on a boat.
however.. does my lifestyle fit a boat?
yes.
yes.
and yes again.. I do not want my life to be dictated by my wardrobe(note the word war..) however.. I have to make the "bank" sotospeak.. it is all a game Karen.. and if you want to play.. pair down your frocks and kick up the spices.. give yourself a timeline for your exodus...I suggest a bridge or dolphin to pass as you sail out of Babylon

Hi Karen ,
Sorry to hear of your job loss ... look at it as a major opportunity to get involved in Bluewater life !!! .. I am new to this site too and intend to retire early within the next 24 months and change my existing charter yacht for a 34 ft liveaboard and venture into the big wide Blue !
Go 4 it !
Kevin
