Congrats on your purchase
& your plan, I would be very interested in following how you make out. What do or did you do for a living? Are you a guy that is good with his hands? Alone? Speak any other language? I ask because I have two houses that are being sold to fund just what you are doing & sometimes I think I am crazy.. I have only been on a sailboat a few weeks, but I have alot of time on boats,really alot, but most on ski stuff & fishing
& have lived on inland lakes all my life (52). I beleave that I am well ahead of the curve on average & have been an engine builder
& Mec since I was little,( my step dad had a auto repair shop) & am trained to work on most all repairs
& have had this dream since 7th grade, but life happens while we make plans,,, x wife, sick mother,job, all these things can get in the way.. They are all gone now.. Now,, I just want to go, Many will say,don`t, to those, I must say it is better to live & die trying than to never even try, so if you don`t want to help,I understand, but don`t bash someone for trying to live there dream,nothing constructive there..... If you do a blog I would read it & would LOVE to be able to learn what I can!! You got balls to even try,You go!!! I LOVE to hear that I am not the only person with this thought & have heard it all.. I wish you the best of luck!!
