Re: Talking Husband into Living on a Sailboat

"Pushing the plan" is an uphill battle. Either you're both in or it's a problem. Refreshing to see this going the other way, but none the less perilous. You can't push, or the inevitable hardships will cause resentment.

In the end, how do you know you'll enjoy raising a young family aboard, in a boat you don't own yet? Some do well, others can't deal with being that close for that long.

Dream and go for it, but only if he wants it too. Same advice the other way around.

Interesting observation........ this is your dream, but you list him as Captain on your blog. Reverse sexism or attempt at persuasion?
