    My story is similar to many but I've noticed a trend over the last 10 years that I believe is now crippling, in many places, the very essence of this sport and industry. The pressure put on marinas from the recent increase in homelessness. After spending time working on the boat, my wife and I...

    I'm in a bit of a pickle here. My stove runs off of propane, until now I've kept the tank inside (yes I know this is bad and that is why I'm looking for a solution) My boat (nor'sea 27) does not have a propane locker, nor do I have sea rails to attach tank holders to ( I have wire lifelines)...

    We've been living aboard for the last year and a half and we're frequently coming up with upgrades to create a nice environment to sail and live. I'm curious what upgrade (if something in particular) has increased your quality of life the most? For us, it's our upgraded solar panel array. We...

    I am new to this forum. :captain: My soon to be husband and I are wanting to purchase a boat to live aboard. I am more new to this than he is -- I have never spent a day on a boat, but we have his mother and step father to guide us as they live aboard one. He has spent lots of time aboard...

    Hi everyone, So I am starting a new thread in light of the closing of my last one "Watkins 27 Thoughts and advice". Unfortunately the Watkins I was looking at was scraped and I wasn't able to get her. On the bright side; I can now pursue a vessel that offers blue water sailing...

    I graduate culinary school in a year and that's the only reason I haven't made the move yet. I go to school in the city so living aboard is not an option at the moment. But after graduation I want to live aboard. My question is, are there any chefs who live aboard and what difficulties do you...

  16. Boat Review Forum
    Good evening ladies and gents, I've found a 1976 c&c mk II 29' sailboat for 5k. The interior is fairly nice and actually clean, which is unusual for that price range I've found. There's minor cosmetic wear and tear on the inside, but it does have some flaws. The diesel engine has a head crack...
