Greetings from Grayslake, IL fellow Boaters!!

Hello,

My wife and I are future live aboard retiree's. I am a retired Army Officer on my 2nd career just counting down the days/years until we can make our final live aboard purchase. My goal is a steel hull, blue water vessel that is between 68' and 80'. We plan on getting our "Captain's Licenses" to ensure we have a basis of official knowledge to go with our water experiences.

Thank you!

Happy and Safe Boating!!

Erik & Jennifer

Hi!

We have some family members that will also be with us. My young adult son has Autism, and my mother will most likely also be with us. I honestly think that we might focus on the 68' - 72' range. Those levels have all the redundancies that I am looking for and the performance for the type of traveling that we want to do. Nordhaven and Bering vessels are the blue print.

Hope you are well!

Erik
