I think Mark gave you great advice.

As we can all attest to, there is that urge to change many things on a yacht at the beginning, part to make it your own and part to test out a few ideas. Live with her a while and you will see your priorities change and a budget develop that keeps everything positive.

There is no greater feeling than to stand at the helm of your own craft and choose your horizon….Congratulations!

I'm just curious. You had to fill out an application for live aboard? What's that all about?
