We started on a power boat
too - a 33' Carver Mariner. It was a great boat to start living on, but we have dreams of someday cruising so in the end we chose to make the move to a 35' Ericson
sailboat. While we have less living space in the sailboat, we have more storage
, and there are ups and downs to that. Most of our friends who live on land see both boats (the old one is still at the same marina) and ask us what we were thinking when we switched! It definitely is roomier on the inside, but we don't for a second wish we had done it any other way. The power boat
was a great transition from land to sea, but we love turning off the engine
and hoisting the sails!
