Hello all!

Hi everyone, I am Chris and I started sailing in 2009 but only got back into it this year. I recently took a 5 day course to get my PCOC (which i now have) with a local sailing school. I am thinking about living about a boat since 2008, but have yet to actually try it out. But I am in contact with someone who will, hopefully, let me boat sit their sailboat for the month of November. I am also looking at boat listings for a live-aboard, but I am not planning on buying one until the new year.

Welcome Chris!

Hope your live aboard situation works out.

The thought of living aboard going into winter in Canada sounded pretty hardcore for a first experience... but then I checked the average temperatures for Nov in Victoria... 5-9 degrees Celcius. Doesn't sound so bad.

Heard it's beautiful there too. Good luck!

Thanks Crusing Kitty!
I think overall I am going to like the experience just the only thing I am wondering about is the types of maintenance required to keep her in peek condition (daily, weekly, monthly.. and so on).
I am also considering acquiring a project boat and then fixing her up instead of spending several thousand on a well maintained boat.
