Blow up that pic and look at the main hull. Looks rough.

Your dog is like a life-partner for you right now. It's not just the boat that is holding you back. If your dog is not suited for cruising, no boat of any size is going to solve your problem.

The only way you will be able to start cruising without compromises is to do it alone. Given your low budget, and low lifestyle expectations, that is probably just how you'll have to do it.

On the flip side, you now have a nice dream-goal to work toward! And you have the timeframe to do it in. There are many many ways to start getting ready for that future lifestyle without buying and moving aboard a boat.

I DO NOT want to derail this thread, as it really helps me keep the dream alive, but can you elaborate a bit more on this? Aside from researching and reading about the lifestyle, what are some other things that can really help to prepare?

Tip
Taking sailing lessons, joining a sailing club, attending boat shows, and so on.

Also, a person can start immediate financial and lifestyle preparations. Start collecting items that you will use on the boat, and winnowing away items that you will not use on the boat.

Basically, you can start creating your boat lifestyle in your own apartment.

You can download and install openCPN and other sailing/navigation relevant software and begin learning how to use it.

You can take classes in diesel engine, fiberglass, and wood repairs and maintenance.

You can start identifying potential employers around the world, and start gaining the kind of experience that will be valuable for a transient worker to have.

Also, you can learn to fish, navigate by the stars, take certification courses up though bareboat charter.

If you're an American, then you should seriously consider finding a way to emigrate to Canada or a European country ASAP since that is probably the only way you will be able to pay for health care once you start cruising full time, and it may create additional opportunities for employment outside the United States.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

I wanted to see the interior. I know the performance would be impacted, but I would like that kind of head room in that size of boat.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

I think this 40' Piver in Maryland was posted here before but at the newly lowered price of $24,000 it looks like it might be worthwhile.
