The 1973 Pearson indeed has a head with an intake, holding tank & pumpout.
I'm very much single, about 4 years from retirement and should have SS & PERS to keep me going. I also hope to ply my trade(surveyor), working as a pick-up consultant or GPS specialist, as I sail around. The boat's big enough for "some", equipment . . . if I choose. I also worked as a naturalist many years ago and my degree is in natural resources . . . naturally. I'm also a veteran, so I have some help their too(medical), which can follow me.
I expect to go the route of my past-brother who ceremoniously, pitched virtually all his wordly goods to live about 20+ years in a 16' scampy trailer . . . must be something about family blood.
In any case I expect to have very little when/if I make the actual jump to liveaboard-cruising. I have no interest in parking my butt in a marina.
My main concerns is how to provision myself and determining how long I can stay at anchor without venturing on the hard tack. I tend to be a loner, I like solitude and spend a lot of time contemplating. I hope liveaboard cruising agrees with me.
