Hello from Scotland

57 year old from Aberdeen with a RYA day skipper and VHF ticket.

Not too far away from retirement and looking to become a live aboard in the next few years in sunnier climes.

Main interest is to read what others have to say on a multitude of topics and glean as much information as possible.

Wecome to the forum.

hello, subs57

> live aboard in the next few years in sunnier climes

I have some experience along these lines, be happy to discuss
whilst visiting in Aberdeen this summer.

Have you any yacht facilities there? My information shows big
ships galore, but no sailing boats. Where do you keep your
