I think it looks a lot less sketchy to be living on a small sailboat than it does on a small powerboat. In the six years I have lived in this town I don't think I have seen a small powerboat liveaboard
make it past 2 years. I have seen at least 15 liveaboard
powerboats get impounded and subsequently mashed into the town dump.
I am also attending university. I use the school's gym for showers and the library as my study room. I would eat there too, but damn the cafeteria is expensive.
If you get a sailboat don't fall in to the trap I see many buying
power won't heat your boat in the winter. Neither will wind
power. Those solar
cells will provide you with a $1000 dollar iphone charger
. Which is all the rage currently, but a waste in my opinion. As is the $600 iFacebook update device.
9k could get you a 30'-32' sailboat. But I wouldn't want to mess with a single
in that price
range. Also mechanical issues in boats don't involve changing the spark plugs or oil
. Also, no one wants to owner finance your purchase
unless they are trying to dump the boat. Which happens. But then why do you want that thing.
