LoFi pardon my ignorance, but are these styles or brands?

imagine2frolic In that case you only need a less expensive boat, and not a world cruiser, blue water boat. That really simplifies things for you. There are older Coronados, Columbias, Cals, Catalinas, and the list is quite huge. Lots of bang for the bucks with nice living space........i2f

LoFi ya i will. In all honesty the boat will making short journeys into the pudget sound and providing a place to live. pretty simple.

Go to the Boat Buying Forum and start a thread there about what you want. List as many details as possible, including where you live, your personal circumstances, money, the child, etc. You shuold get a lot of repies.

imagine2frolic The child will be fine if you can work out a system where he can burn off energy, and not keep him cooped up. Might bring in a whole new structure to your relationship. You won't be the first to raise a child in small quarters. BEST WISHES in working things out in your favor......i2f

erps In the PNW, a poorly insulated boat is going to cause you condensation problems in the winter time. The previous owner of our boat lived on board down at Shilshoal for 13 years. It has insulated hulls and a good heat source that improved the quality of life considerably.

erps Where are you planning on doing this. Living aboard would be easier in some parts of the country over others. Finding a marina that allows live aboards can be a problem in some areas too. There are blogs out there of folks currently livingaboard and you can learn quite a bit from their experiences.

Ya, my buddy has a 30' and i liked the size. I do have a four year old son and I'm wondering what kind of stress that would put on him. I live in the northwest and our winters are rainy and unpleasant.
