Hi all, this is my first post! It looks like a great community, I'm excited to join! I hope I put this thread in the right place.
Anyway, like the title says, I'm interested in living aboard
my sailboat in Cleveland, Ohio
. Of course it'd be seasonal, and it would probably get pretty cramped (The boat is a Catalina
25- not the biggest, but she's all mine!). But I'm a young, single
guy, and I live pretty simply. Plus, my job will ensure that I'm not home all that much, for the next few years anyway. Its going to be 12+ hour days, 6-7 days a week.
I'm attracted to living aboard
because of the minimalist lifestyle it embodies, and also for financial reasons- I'm going to be paying for a slip anyways, why pay rent too? Plus I absolutely love sailing, and taking my house with me wherever I go sounds amazing.
I was hoping that someone might have Cleveland- or Catalina- specific advice, as far as what marinas
to look at, whether marinas
in Cleveland are even tolerant of people living on their boats, modifications to make living aboard easier... or anything else you may have to add! I've been lurking here for some time now, but I'm obviously still a newbie.
Thanks in advance
