Hello From Miami


My name is Sylaubh and I am "very" new to sailing. My goal (soon to be realized) is to live aboard in this beautiful part of our great country. However, I know about sailboats and live aboard as much as I know about opening an ice cream parlor in Iceland - zilch!

This is the reason I came to this site to learn from the experts. I like asking questions and I am open to suggestions.

Just wanted to stop by, introduce myself, and to thank you for viewing my post.


P.S. Sylaubh is not my real name. It's an acronym for "Simplify Your Life and U Be Happy"

Welcome aboard, Sylaubh. Thanks for explaining your user name-- I thought you might be speaking Gaelic. I'm sure you'll find a lot of useful information here, and I hope you enjoy your stay.

What kind of boats are you looking at? I moved aboard in february and have loved every bit of it (I have lived aboard before).
Happy boat shopping,

Aloha Sylaubh,
Welcome aboard! Somehow someone assumes you are a woman? I didn't get that out of your post but maybe I missed something. Good to have you posting here. I lived aboard a Mariner 35 for several years and miss it very much. Someday I might be moving aboard again once my boat is back in the water.
Living aboard was not hard for me since I'd made several ships home before moving to a sailboat. Just a bit more cramped quarters and a sense of freedom from shore activities.
Kind regards,
