As I prepare to jump into my lifelong dream of learning
to sail and purchasing
a boat I can live aboard, I need to get an idea of what kind of regular scheduled maintenance
I should plan for and what the cost is. How often must I have the boat out of the water
? Is the required maintenance
I read somewhere that living aboard
a boat requires a minimum of 2 hours per day spent on maintenance and repair. I can live with that, and actually look forward to caring for my own boat, taking pride in her and learning
from her. Is 2 hours about normal? I'm sorry if my questions sound ridiculous, but I am just beginning the journey and believe in good research
and planning before I take too big a step.
I appreciate any and all input provided. Thanks.
