Unfortunately I've lived away from the water
for some time. Recently I've moved to the east coast
and now have a renewed ambition to buy a boat and make the liveaboard
jump. I've been trying to figure out for some time how to do this and I keep coming back to some advice from a guy I met once who called himself Popeye. He said, "Go cheap
, go now!" So I'm looking at cheap
boats. Some of them may be called project
boats, although even if I had a perfectly maintained new boat I would still have the same problem. Right now, I live in an apartment. I'm a pretty capable able bodied guy but I don't have a place to work on a boat or to store a boat. I figure the first baby step to living on a boat is having a boat to live on. I'm not too picky about the boat itself, I figure it's a blank canvas
and as long as it doesn't sink I can do whatever I want with it (my concept
of what would be an "acceptable" boat has expanded dramatically in the recent past).
However, supposing I buy a boat, then what? How do I find a place to do the work? What are my options when it comes to this? I know this sounds like a stupid question, but I figure... baby steps... maybe someone can offer some advice. Thanks.
