I almost gave up the dream on my first boat. I let her sit for a couple years for a variety of reasons. When I started dating my ex she didn't even know I had a boat and was ecstatic when she found out. The first time we went out there together we ended up staying the night unplanned and we did the necessary clean-up and repair to make her liveable and seaworthy
. We ended up living together in my apartment and when the lease
was up we decided to move on board my old 26 Pearson
. It was a bit tight with two of us plus her cat but it wasn't bad. We split up and reconciled a few times and I pretty much gave her the boat and she is still living aboard
I've met a few girls who have lived aboard at some point in their, only one who did it alone but at a marina. It is a cool life and most girls I meet are intrigued. I am not going to give up my lifestyle for anyone.
