Re: new owner

I'm not sure it's fair to compare living on a 40' with living aboard a 27. I think it's much easier to keep things stowed on a 40.

Two people (who don't believe in camping) and four people for 3yrs. (my son and his wife) had no problem keeping "stuff" to a minimum). For twenty yrs my entire social circle was liveaboards, many of whom (on much smaller boats) were as organized as we were. Some on 50' motoryachts had so much junk there was no where to sit down. It all depends on your personal proclivities.

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.

Re: new owner

well all that i own right now is cloths a bed and my guitar so stuff wont be an issue the issue i will have is sleeping space (im 6'6) my plan on that was instead of sleeping in the vberth was to get a hammock and hang that up inside (how i dont know but im sure its doable) but when i think jimgo said money issues yeah im looking at throwing 8000 at least in the first 6 months in docking, payments on the boat, and other projects that need to be done before i get there but with my finances i believe its very reasonable for me to afford.

pics are on the way soon just got to get russell to send them to me
