ai live on a 40foot pilot house ketch, morgan design. I have been living on the boat scince 2000 after I retired. I purchased the boat in 97 and spent 3 years fixing and refiting her. So far have made a circumnavigation with her, also planning another in the next year or so.
When I purchased the boat she was what is called a hurricane boat and in sad shape. With a lot of time and work she became what I wanted, I have customized her to meet my needs and she is very comfy.
I am at anchor or the "hook" as we call it. I rarely go to a dock. Seems as though when at a dock or marina things have a habit of growing legs and leaving.
Fair winds to all!!!!

Retired and a full time liveaboard in the Caribbean. Boat is a New Bombay Trading Company Explorer 44 with 400 watts of solar. I live on the hook and single hand about 50% of the time.

The interior is suited to living at rest and the layout is not ideal for passage making but as almost all my sailing is daysailing it suits me just fine.

This is my tenth year as a liveaboard.

I live on my Pilothouse Ingrid Orca in a marina in the PNW. I'm a little over a year into a total refit and have another 2 years (pleasepleaseplease) to go. The completion date coincides with my early retirement date. Then d'Anian and I are headed north singlehanded.

Prior to this, I lived on my first boat, a 26' Laguna for 4 years.

Re: Who''s living on what??

I live aboard and single hand my 22' cutter in the PNW. I average less than $700 per month for all of my living expenses, I eat fresh local food and wash it down with wine every night. I don't own a car and payed cash for the boat, she was a bit rough when I found her but well on her way. I was hoping to set sail for Hawaii this year but I may have to settle with Mexico as I am a bit behind schedule. Part of what keeps my living expenses so low is that I sail engine less, do all my own work on the boat, and don't have any electronics. I have never once missed having refrigeration, an engine, or roller furling..., I prefer the freedom simplicity has given me.
