What facts are you interested in finding?
Oh, well, just about everything!
I guess the first thing is whether all this is even possible. I went to a marina and looked around. I was kind of too shy to just walk up and ask questions.
I'd really like to live aboard what I guess they call a "pocket cruiser". I don't know what an ideal boat would be, but I suppose something around 30' would be about right. J-30? Catalina
What are realistic prices? I know there are boats for sale
for under $5000, but I image they have problems that a novice
wouldn't want to deal with. However, I'd like to live simply and not take on major expenses. It's kind of hard to know where to start.
