SRsail I will wish you good luck on the whole boat thing, and I also wish you good luck on not catching sh*t for digging up such a old thread. Good Luck

mirhon Lived Aboard My Catalina 25 For 2 1/2 Years. If My Wife's Transfer Goes Through To Lihue Kauai, I Am Already Looking Into A Catalina 36 To 40 This Time. My Wife Has Never Lived Aboard A Boat So I Figured She Needed The Extra Room And As For Me I Will Finally Get The Boat I Want. What A Thoughtful Husband I Am. Wish Me Luck. We'll Know In About Two Weeks.

I liveaboard my Tanzer 7.5 (summer''s only so far) on the Hudson River (NY Capital District). I have everything I need (except a female sailing companion - any sailing females interested?) aboard and will retire this year and sail the boat to FL so I can liveaboard year-round.

I realy enjoy the freedom to just up and cruise anytime I want and drop the hook anyplace I take a fancy too. Just Do It!

Follow your dream. I was outfitting my boat for singlehanding when I met a woman who fell for it too. We married, and she wanted to live aboard and cruise. We had a great time for awhile, her and her 15 year old daughter, but after we tied up in marina to work for awhile, she walked out on me one day while I was at work. I haven''t seen her since. I sailed back to my home port. It was a broken dream, but I am sailing again, and I will do it with or without a woman.

In an answer to Who''s Living aboard?
I am, I am. As a a cpt of ten years all I can really say is, "Anchor Out, get lots of chain,and only allow 3 pair of shoes per crew(woman)

Counting down the days here... Ill be moving aboard in April or May, spending the summer stocking the kitty and doing refits, and hopefully getting underway this fall (next spring at the latest)

For now, at least, I wont be keeping a shoreside abode, although Im having the problem of what do do with the Stuff that wont fit aboard - Ive no problem with selling off most of my worldly goods, but Id hate to part with 2/3 of my books, and I know they wont all fit aboard.

I imagine Ill borrow storage space at my parent''s or sister''s, as Im intending to live aboard year-round for several years at least.

Bob: I spent a month on Barnegat last year... lovely areas; I want to sail it someday.

I have been for years reading all the emails of sailors sailing off into the sunset. Well dam it it''s my turn and I am ready. Can''t seem to get the wife to see it this way but I know all good things must come to an end. It does hurt but my life and dream are also important.
Good luck and always looking for a good honest person to enjoy life together sailing the world.....
