Re: Greetings Everyone !

Welcome aboard from a boy from Tupelo who made it. I dreamed about living aboard and cruising since Junior High about 1950. We did it! Cruised away in May 1988 for a wonderful 18 years.

Re: Greetings Everyone !

Christian,
You have a worthy goal (same as all of us)! Two ways to make it happen, of course. The fastest is to go the OPB route (other people's boats). You can gain a lot of experience for very little money. The other way is to work like hell, don't spend a dime, and eventually the sweet day comes when you acquire your own vessel (and then you start to spend even more)!
Good luck.
Dhillen
