It really isn't as glamorous a life as one would be led to believe. If you sail the tropics, its hot, you dont have A/C, your fridge constantly breaks, the beers sometimes warm....the people that live shoreside dont want you anchoring there. Marinas are expensive. You're constantly fixing something broken, or inventorying things that need to be fixed, or runnign to the store to get things that have run out or need to be replaced.

The views are amazing...the lifestyle less clock driven....the camaraderie can be amazing...and many of us wouldn't do anything else.

But know what you're getting into. Its a harder life than living cheap ashore.
