Hello everyone, I would like to introduce myself and my hubby, we are new boat owners, and we are in the process of moving aboard our 65' Pacemaker MY ... It's an oldy, but hopefully a goodie! We are biting off more than we can chew, I'm sure, but it's been our dream to do this for quite a few years now. And the opportunity came to us in a way that we felt we couldn't pass up.
Some will disagree with our decision to liveaboard
and deal with the leaks
and creaks of an old wooden yacht, but we are so excited that we are about to burst. I will say, we have not a clue what lies ahead, we know a little about boating
, and even living aboard
, as my mother in law lived on her 38'chris craft sea skiff for 11 years, so we will have some help and lots of family
willing to pitch
in to get a piece of the fun in the summer months.
we have some major things to fix right away, it needs a new water
heater, and one of the vacuflush heads is plugged up and not operating correctly.. So that being said if anyone knows a good, honest, fair plumber for marine
toilets and water
systems, please send them my way. I will include my email
address, and if they are local to the portland
, or area that would be fabulous!
Well, off to downsize my life, and sell everything we own pretty much, because even though it's 65' long, and 16'6" breadth we have tons of furniture and things to sell over the next 2 weeks to prepare to board and relocate our new home! Wish us luck!
