Re: Is there anything you miss?

I miss my garden, my goat and chickens. I miss my forge, foundry, welder and shop.

If you want a workshop and a boat take a look at Ebays sailboat list. 49'lod Alum and the bid is only up to $2900. Just what you want a sailboat workshop and a sailboat project.....

Another round of great responses from the community! Most appreciated.

And Phil - I can't find mine either!

I'm anxious to move onboard and start missing all those things as well!

Re: Is there anything you miss?

I haven't moved aboard yet, but when i do, i know i will miss my old woodworking shop, but i also know that i will find other ways to do the things that need to do, being a carpenter for the the last 46 yrs you tend to become resoursful. The tools i have now will become a land anchor,get rid of them, learn to live with less.

Sufficient hanging wardrobe closets & sporting goods stowage. That's it.
