Just moved aboard!

Hello all, I just moved aboard my 1973 Morgan O/I 33' on the first of July and loving every minute of it. Its been a 20 year long dream and finally have done it! Im learning a lot of new things living aboard. Training for a triathalon is one of them lol. I say that because of the 100 yard dash in the morning to get to the bathrooms, the mountain climbing at low tide up the ramps, the strong man training carrying everything down the docks to the boat. lol but i wouldnt trade it for the world. I have learned that there is always something to fix or take care of on a sailboat and cant wait to take her out for sea trials. I only wish i would have done this sooner. Also ive learned there are alot of females that love the romantic side of it but none that i have found yet want to travel long distance, maybe im just looking in the wrong places lol. Any one with any tips they want to throw in would be fine. Thank god for this site its helped me so much. Fair winds all

Welcome and congrats. You are now one of the few that have simplified their lives and decided to test their comfort level. And don't sweat winter. We love being aboard in the winter. The marina is nice and quiet.

You will be amazed by the reaction you get from folks about your lifestyle. I was once called the most interesting man this woman had ever met...and yes I do occasionally drink Dos Equis!

Thanks everyone, Now im trying to find a place south of me in California or maybe Baha to head to thats cheap to stay and and maybe find odd jobs. I know i used the word cheap and California in the same sentence when they dont go together. lol Does anyone have any thoughts as to a good place to winter on the pacific side? Or maybe a part time job even, I know electronics,mechanics,plumbing,maintenance a jack of all trades. Thank again.
