Re: If you were in my shoes...

You might be interested in adapting to life without a car. Groceries, laundry and all shopping activities completed with the use of small folding bicycles or public transportation. Liveaboard cruisers can not have cars!

Re: If you were in my shoes...

You asked about where to learn about boat electrical.

"Maine Sail" is a nickname for a highly respected contributor to this and many other boards. He posts regularly on sailboatowners.com, and many of his articles are included in this link. He also has his own website noted in the intro.

Electrical Systems 101

Good luck. I'm sure there must be at least one skipper from Colorado who is "out there."

Use all your skill make your own micro cruiser (i.e. Core Sound) master sailing a small trailerable boat first. It will fit your budget and give you a good start.

Can save the motor money as they can be paddled.

GPS? Garmin Map76 and you are set.

Just concentrate on the last one and she can pay for somebody to do everything, boytoy.
