Hey there folks, I'm new to the site and thought I'd introduce myself (hopefully this is an okay place to do so).
I'm 23 years old and have only currently decided to try and make my liveaboard
dream a reality. I've thought about this and turned it over in my head
again and again since I was in middle school
. I've always loved the ocean, being on it, working my grandfather's swamp boats, and my dad's gulf tour boats.
I've put my plan into motion, researching ASA
schools closest to me and plotting how to make a living while sailing and, while I realize that its not likely to happen for a good ten to fifteen years, I'm hopeful and intensely focused on my goal.
My partner and I have decided to embark on this journey together, as much as we can, and to seek help and advice from those more knowledgeable than us. SO PLEASE!
Experienced liveaboarders, sailors, and folks who live entirely off of your boats: Can you tell us how you do it? Advice? Recommendations? Anything you know, we would love to learn. Thank you so much and may your waters be calm!
