This thread does interest me as I see the potential trade from the opposite side. Trading my boat for something ashore, but not to gain security. I've never thought my liveaboard
vessel was less secure, but I have always been one to plan ahead.
My wife and I are leaving in the morning for a cruise
northbound from Florida
. We're not done yet, but I know that after 43 years aboard our three boats, health will eventually move us to shore. Nancie has glaucoma and increasing difficulty with stairs.
We are accustomed to "small". I can't imagine acres of land, but a little place near necessities. We have often passed this place on the water
that appears to be the right size for those moving from a boat!
...... but it's on an island, has stairs and is too far from a grocery store!
We've often thought that the perfect house ashore would be a couple of those utility sheds linked together that you see outside the Home Depot stores!
We can't know our future, but I do know that our life aboard has a limit!
