Thanks David, I just don't know how I would get a small sailing dinghy
around on top of the jeep. However, I will consider it if something to live aboard doesn't come along. Actually, even if a live aboard comes along I might do the dinghy
just to gain some of the practical experience and understanding of how the wind
works with the sails
I have already considered that the first boat I buy will be temporary for three possible reasons. 1) I may want to upgrade 2) It might be too costly to repair for extended service
3) I might not like the whole live aboard program at all. I realize all of these things are possible, and others may arise (health, finances, etc,etc) but I won't know unless I try. Truthfully, unless I sell everything I own (which isn't much) I probably will be looking at closer to $5k. So the repairs
will be necessary, but I will consider that training as well.
