Great boat! We live on a CSY 33, but have crewed on 2 different Valiants & had a nice ride both times. (Course, it also seemed sooo spacious after we're used to our small boat. But it's paid for )

i have a 1978 S2-9.2C, it's a center cockpit 30' sloop rigged cruiser designed by Aurther Edmonds (spelling?) and i have been living aboard her since 2003. i am just at the tail end of a two year refit that included 11 months on the hard due to a complete gelcoat peel and new epoxy bottom. and yes, i lived aboard in the yard, while installing the new engine, rigging and sanitation system. i have a gym membership and kept my clothes in the car, i would shower and change at the gym. i didn't find it inconvient at all. i have lived aboard various boats prior to this one and i work at sea as a merchant sailor. i had a much larger boat before and miss the space and tankage, but not the cost of everything. on this boat i have removed the marine-air air conditioner, the microwave and most all of the 110v do dads to make room for more room. my boat is not small as far as living space goes, but on deck it lacks adequate storage. i'm fixing that with an arch/davit system and a couple of small boxes on deck and one in the cockpit. my plan is to cruise 6 months, put the boat somewhere safe and bolster the kitty on some ship somewhere for two months and cruise 6 months until i can cruise 8 months, 10, bye bye.

I live on a Cascade 29' sloop, has a 8'6'' beam so she's a tight fit, but i love it.
Only one thing I really want to change and thats the fact the water tank fill is under the V berth where i sleep, so i have to remove my mattress to fill up like once a month. other then that for almost a year she's been my home.

I figured I would bump this thread.

I have been living on my 32' O'day 322 for six months now and love it. When getting into this, I thought I would have to buy at least a 36 footer. The 32' O'day works just fine. It has a nice big queen berth in the aft behind the galley that is enclosed with door, hanging lockers and drawers. The head is large and the shower area is plenty big enough making showers effortless. Ike destroyed our facilaties and I have been forced to use my boat for all things and I am so lucky to have bought this model.

Here are a few pics. Even one with my ugly mug in it

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Yeah, news had to ruin a perfectly good picture

Maybe a pic of the admiral will make up for it
