Really new to this!!!

Hi everyone!

Saying I'm new is a understatement! I was living my life in what I thought was my happy little bubble and then bam...I met this man who has turned my world upside down! In less than one month of knowing him I can't hardly stand being away from him or his boat. I find myself day dreaming constantly of the life of just sailing and letting go of the structure of the 8-5 workday.

Family and friends are supportive as I share my newfound dreams with them. Of course there are a few that think I might be crazy! Lol

There is so much great information on this site and I look forward to learning as much ad possible over the next few months as I prepare to close this chapter of my life and begin my new adventure with the man of my dreams!

I feel a bit lost on how to begin? It seems overwhelming at moments thinking of all the things to do and get rid of.

Any insight, tips and tricks to beginning the lifestyle of being a liveaboard?

Mary

As you have probably figured out, that is NOT his boat, and Cormeum would like to know his name and address.

Boat (almost) stolen. Totally insane day

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
