you guys live on a 38 inch boat? how's that work?


hmmm after reading more posts, it seems a lot of folks make the same error. ' means feet and " means inches. kind of reminds me of that movie, "this is spinal tap". the band comes up with this stage design for a 24 foot stone henge and want elves dancing around it. they make a mistake and write 24" instead of 24', on the napkin picture, so what they get is elves dancing around a 2 foot tall stone henge that they tower over. funny movie.

Some of us are just from forward thinking places that abandoned imperial decades ago.

Re: Who''''s living on what??

Mike,

Your question is a good one, but a realitive one. You, however, have come to the right forum. There is a lot of good info. Pick and chose wisely.

Relaitive to the area you live in...Relative to the luxuries you still want to keep, price of dock space, electicity, style of boat you want to live aboard, eating habits (fancy restaurants or mac and cheese)...etc etc etc....

Make the car the last thing to go if you get rid of it. Taking the bus sucks and friends tire of getting phone calls from you looking for a lift or needing to transport stuff. Bikes will only take you just so far carrying stuff.

Sit down one evening and take a really hard think about what you want, need, and/or can live without to do it. This is just for starters...then spread it ALL out on the dock and take a look again...then have a yard sale to make new friends at the dock.

Andrew

Any idea of average cost per month to survive? (Food, fuel, etc?)

Thanks,

Mike
