Congratulations

Time for a great life change. Right now, we are just staying on the boat one week per month as we remodel the boat.

HAVE FUN

The two feathered, one scaled and the hairless cat move on next week! We just have to get everything situated first. Right now stuff is still in boxes, I can't find my clothes and I am using a cooler for a step from the dock lol!

Re: Officially Living Aboard

Hello, Congrats on your new venture. I am new to this forum and I need some advise on living aboard in Florida. I am taking a job transfer to Clear Water and would like to live aboard there or near there. Can anyone help me with what I might expect to encounter when finding a marina to accommodate a live aboard. Thanks Lou

Re: Officially Living Aboard

Congratulations! Nice looking docks.

A cockpit awning should be high on your wish list.

A cockpit awning is very high on the list! We do have a portable ac so it is comfortable we also have someone to help us rig the sails and the boom on Monday or Tuesday. Then I have a tarp for temporary shade.

After the animals all adjust and then you readjust to them, you are ready to really have fun, congradulations.
