Hello From aboatbum

Denny & Lynn
We are from Ohio on Lake Erie. I am currently deployed in Afghanistan as a civilian medic in support of the US Marines here. Lynn is a RN back home in Ohio.
We have a 47 ft Egg Harbor Flush Deck Motor Yacht, MV Lifesavers currently undergoing a complete renovation from the keel up, The hull was just completed with a total rebuild of transom framing and planking. The decks and topsides are next.
We are hoping to cruise from Lake Erie to the Gulf Coast and become full time liveaboards. Corpus Christi and League City, Texas, so far look promising.
We both hope to get lots of information from this site in prepreations for our corversion from land lubbers to liveaboards. Look forward to reading the forums and gathering usefull information.
I hope to return back to the USA next summer/fall and complete the final touches on Lifesavers for our new life onboard.

Safe Boating Everyone

Denny & Lynn

Welcome aboard Lifesavers. Keep your head low in Afghanistan. Did you hear about the little old lady who was escorted off of a commercial flight with her knitting needles? She kept saying, "I just want to knit an Afghan."

Fair Winds,


Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns -- and even convictions. Heart of Darkness

Yes, Denny and Lynne, welcome aboard and thanks for your service in Afghanistan. It sounds as if you have a plan and a great boat in which to carry it out.
