Well, I'm researching boats yes, but I want to know a bit more before i just dive in. Given I've never hoisted a sail in my life, there is no immediate rush to buy something
The live aboard plan really appeals (even its for only a couple of years - what an experience to have), but full time work at this stage would limit any ability to cruise in the short term. I'm planning to move to contract work which would allow me to work less and live more. I'm certain that "less encumbered" is the way to go, and there are some great spots on the east coast to spend a few months every year, in between work commitments.
I've no problem with downsizing, and currently regard most of my possessions as very disposable (house included).
Ha - i remember a time when everything I owned would fit in my car, and i just drove from state to state, finding jobs and places to live....it was so simple then

tomperanteau Hey, look, another Aussie here. Not that I am one, but there are a few others here.

One of our clients is an Aussie, and she has been a very nice person to deal with, so I have a lot of respect for Aussies.

Come to think of it the man that bought our last boat was from New Zealand. Told us that the sailboats you could buy on the west coast here would sell for a LOT more there.

Anyway, nice to meet you and I look forward to chatting with you here and there.

Have you dried out yet? Ironically, I also spent time in Christchurch NZ, but lets not even go there! Anyway, my boat is currently in Brisbane California (pronounced with a hard A), just South of San Francisco. Welcome! I hope you find the SN forum as useful as I have.
thanks L124C, yep its been a rough couple of months for a lot of folks over this way, but the spirit is strong.
