New to this forum, I'm author Janet Groene (Living Aboard, ABCs of Boat Camping, The Galley
on the Go, Open Road Caribbean
Guide et al.) . For 10 years, Gordon and I lived on board our 29-foot sloop
, cruising constantly. Then we sold the boat because magazine assignments took us bareboating all over the world. It was not only great for our travelwriting business, it gave us a chance to try many different boats large and small, sail and power including houseboats. I now write the Liviing Aboard column for Houseboat magazine and am a full-time, freelance travelwriter.
