  1. Dreaming of the live aboard life

    Cruising & Liveaboard Forum
    So my Wife and I have started to seriously discuss living aboard and sailing the world. But where to start? Project boat? Fully equipped spend your life savings boat? There are so many things to consider. I look at ads to buy boats everyday, anyone have any thoughts on this?

As I begin my search for a cruiser in the 38' to 42' range I've thought about putting together some sort of spreadsheet of things I want on the boat and how...
  7. For those that moved from land to sea

    General Discussion (sailing related)
    For those that "sold it all", making a life change to live aboard - How long did it take you? I'm talking liquidation of your land-based accommodations and possessions, boat acquisition (if you didn't already have it), etc etc. We are talking timeframe from the moment you decided to live...
