Re: Who''s living on what??

Pearson 303 by myself and love it. I am on mooring 4summer and winter @ dock. Will sail 2 Cape, islands & NH this summer. Block of ice lasts me 4 Days and even MY cooking tastes great out here on gas grill & alcohol stove. Striper fishing in my PJs before work! Very happy - even in rain!

I own mooring & winter is around $2,000 for the 6 months! $30/month 4 electric. Pluses far outweigh inconvenience of 15 minute dinghy "commute".

Re: Who''s living on what??

Currently I am living on a 50 foot Hinckley Southwester Yawl. Live at a marina. The boat is perfect for a couple, nice for 2 couples. The boat has great lines and fantastic upwind handling but for a 50 footer she is a little tight on interior space.

Re: Who''s living on what??

I live , work and travel on a 35" Bonito and am loving it. I don't have as much living space as one would normaly have on a 35" boat but one can addapt to it and as I tend to stay away from the colder places, outside I have all the space I could want and loads of head room as well.

Re: Who''s living on what??

Live aboard a Hardin45... It has a 13.3 ft beam and a Captain's cabin aft with a full size bunk.
Still storing stuff on board and getting rid of stuff I having used or picked up in more than a year. I guess living ashore we have the tendency to hang on to stuff that "we might use in the next decade or so." Now I realize that I don't need all of this junk...

Re: Who''s living on what??

S2 9.1 racer/cruiser.
It wasn't expected, but it does have standing headroom and a potty.

When I was 14 I moved in with my dad and he was living on a Yamaha 33. We made due (can't imagine how!) All I remember is washing my hair every morning on the dock with the hose before school. Ah..... Alaska. When I was 16 we upgraded to a Nordic 40 that had doors and a shower.

Now I'm 38 and experiencing the same. I've lived all over the country but now I'm 9 floats down from where I was as a teen. Bar Harbor, Ketchikan, AK.

A few years ago I bought a VW camper van due to my love of this lifestyle. Until now, that was the best vehicle I ever had. Now I have SERENITY and even with lack of of refrigeration, a confused fresh water pump and a settle full of sails, I am having a great time.

..lord help me.

Re: Who''s living on what??

Been aboard our Endeavour 32 for 2 1/5 years now and the boat has been great.
Only change to the boat we had made is taking out the salon table and the deck color went from tan to light gray.
I think it has alot to having the right boat that keeps us as liveaboards we have seen a feel move back to land only after a short time where the dream has died.

Endeavour E-32 "Samara"

I am the Capt of my ship but sometimes I think I had more fun just being the cabin boy.

Re: Who''s living on what??

At the end of June I will have lived on my 41' Tartan TOCK, TOCK stands for Tartan offshore cruising ketch. She is 36 years old and in very good shape for her age. Previous owner did a bunch of work on her and I am as well. Living in a slip and working ashore in CT. Planning and hoping to go south in 3 or 4 years.

Re: Who''s living on what??

Well, after living aboard the Morgan 33 Out Island for six months, I can definitely say it's a great boat for up to 2 people. Lots of everything you need for living aboard, and when I added a full cockpit enclosure I can honestly say it's the best thing since sliced bread. It kept me warm and dry when the weather outside was cold and wet, good visibility all around, and it's like having another room in the boat.

Cheers,

Gary

Re: Who''s living on what??

I like Gary's remark about the cockpit being another room. We use our cockpit far more when cruising than when we are at the dock for a term. We like the modular system of cockpit enclosing,- rain mode, sun mode, cooling mode, heating mode,,- etc. There are many options with the use of spalsh guards and clip on sides,- opening and closing windscreens.....
