My grandfather owned a few 28-40 foot Carvers and was a harbor master. Growing up around the boats and taking the inflatable dinghy
out has stuck with me and the idea of owning a boat has never strayed far.
Now I'm a junior in college, studying nursing, and I'm looking into what it takes to live aboard a boat. I've found a few cheap
sailboats and a couple cheap
cruisers in the 25-35 foot range that I could live on, and I'm learning
about where I could get a season slip, anchor
, and moor at. (I'm from Michigan)
This is something I want to make a reality soon enough that I can invite my grandparents to come visit me on the boat while they are still able...they're getting into their upper 70's.
I'm excited to dive into the language, learn the culture, and gain wisdom from the experience of you all.
Any advice is appreciated for a 20 year old dreamer, not afraid of taking risks, open to adventure, and looking to add to the legacy of a vessel.
