Where are you located? I found what I thought was a great live aboard set up but it was up in Tallahassee...if you're near there I'd be glad to pass along the info...LMK
The seller was offering financing too...if it was closer I would have considered it.
Was that the Irwin on a river outside Tallahassee?

Thanks Capt. I will look into those. The boat is in great shape just need minor things, the guy I bought the boat from has a canvas business so Im going to have him make me a dodger later down the road when I get things paid off him being the big one.

Solman55, Are you still looking for interior lighs? I just bought some 12V automotive "back-up" LED lights on ebay that I'm planning to use to light my engine room. The price was good compared to the marine supply places and they are bright. ebay Item #400140431035
Take care and joy, Aythya crew

BTW, Looking at the other Watkins 27's out there it looks like you picked a great boat to live on. It is small but it has all of the things you need. So long as yours is in good condition it will be a great boat.
Do you have a dodger for it? I really recommend one if not. That can keep your cabin dry when the weather turns. Not a big deal just a nice to have and one of those projects to add to the list...

The good news is that you have some time for some of the less important items. Relax a bit. There is always a project list on a boat. Always. Great to hear you are going to be moving aboard! Moving onto the boat will be an adventure but you can do it and you'll be glad you did.
