I don't currently have a boat (other than canoes and kayaks) but have a 10 year plan to semi retire to a liveaboard situation with my wife to something around 40 - 44 foot and bluewater capable. We do not have any sailboat experience, but I was in the Navy and have some experience in larger powerboats. I found this site and was very happy to find a place to lurk and learn.
We will be looking for classes soon, a small sailboat to learn a bit with, and are starting to actually search around and investigate exactly what we will be wanting.
Thus far we know we want some sort of wind generator/solar power, water recovery/maker system, decent comm, and Internet. The plan is to teach online classes while sitting on a boat. We should be able to make the move somewhere around my 48 - 50 year on Earth the way things are going now.
Any advice is welcome, but I really don't know enough to even be able to ask the right questions. This is kind of a first step toward making the transition for I feel it will take around the 10 - 12 years for me to feel completely comfortable in making the transition.
At any rate, thanks for the read (if you did) and any info thrown my way.
