My wife and I moved aboard our 26X Macgregor , last july . We have been planning this for many years .
The last two years have been spent refitting our Mac for fulltime living .
Modified the head for showers
40 gallons of water and electric pump
Queen size V berth
stern berth now a cargo hold
4 batteries , two start , two house batteries .
two Yeti coolers under the table
She is solar powered , three cells provide 13 amps in good sun . This powers our boat and the freezer .
She has a Honda 50 outboard that provides the propulsion on the river and additional electricity .
We have limited sailing experience , but on our two (so far) cruises to the Gulf of Mexico we have learned to sail her .
Due to family obligations we have only made to short cruises to the Gulf , about 6 weeks each . This March (2013)we plan to leave on a year long cruise to Key West .
All advice welcomed !
