TeamDestructo85 is on a distinguished road
I'm witin a few weeks of moving on to my new (to me) 1977 45' starrett jenks sloop/ opt cutter rig. It looks like the interior was made for 2 people to cruise. So its roomy, lots of storage, ac, 5 kw gen, and lots of buttons and switches. I've been spending a lot of time over there just sitting around and trying to learn the boat. the p.o. has been great with that, he even made me a dvd! Can't wait to get outta this house. i'm 24, in college and i hate my roomates.

I lived aboard a Pearson 367 Cutter rig in St Thomas, US Virgin Islands for 2 years and now that I am back in the states I am looking at a potential 92' Hunter 30 to live on.

We live aboard a 1978 S2 9.2c (30') sloop. Two adults and a cat. I've been living aboard her since 2003. No complaints. We love her.

I am in the process of restoring/moving aboard my new to me 36 pearson pilothouse! At 27 and not wanting to settle in one place I found the next best thing to a house... a PILOTHOUSE! Lots of storage and living space.

Bristol 45.5 - AiniA

On a Bristol 45.5 in NYC area

My wife and I are living on a center-cockpit Bristol 45.5. It is very comfortable and has pretty much all of the comforts of home. I think I would have preferred something around 40 feet, but the Admiral suggested that we move aboard as long as we picked a boat that she would be comfortable on for longterm.

Our plan is to stay here until August 2010 and then go south. We would likely go to Europe in the spring of 2011 and then cruise in the summer and live aboard in London for at least one winter.

The only problem, and it is something that one can live with - is doing chores on the boat while living on it. I am updating many of the systems (new refrigeration likely this weekend) and doing the varnish a bit at a time.
