Yes, and there's bos indicus, too, the Brahma cattle that are crossbred with other breeds to improve tick resistance.

Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

I told my wife if we ever got divorced or she died I would never remarry.
She said it sounds like I had put a lot of thought into it.

So would it take this thread off topic if I were to ask what happened to the OP?
Did he indeed get that Uhaul outfitted like a first class pimp wagon? Did he get the cat fixed up? Is he neck deep in a bevy of 20 something hardbodies?

Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

I Can totally relate to these stories in that I am in the same boat per say.
As one cruiser with a lot of experience told me

"Go small and carry Green Luggage"

Bigger boats are great for the room but considering moorage fees and the crew to handle them you are so far ahead if you go with a smaller seaworthy boat and bring enough money to enjoy yourself.

I know someone who followed this mantra and bough them selves a Norsea 27. As the worked their way down to Panama from San Diego they found affordable moorages everywhere they went and if they decided then needed to pamper themselves they booked a room in a hotel and used their amenities to wash their clothes, get cleaned up and enjoy the hotels amenities.
