Re: I'm from Missouri and looking for knowledge

There is a lot of factors to consider thats why I'm doing this research. I don't want to jump into a pool without knowing how deep it is.

Sorry.. dogs on boats is a selfish human act of cruelty IMHO..
Agree with boatie on this one. Try keeping your dog in the bathroom for a week, only letting him out for short half hour walks a couple of times a day, and you have to get him in a wheelbarrow to get him from the bathroom to the front door.

I love dogs, but it really is cruel to keep one on a boat.

A good first book would be "Your First Sailboat"

Your First Sailboat, Second Edition by Daniel Spurr | 9780071813471 | Paperback | Barnes & Noble

A very informative book that also happens to be very current. Reviews and diagrams of several different types of sailboats, sections on what to look out for when buying one, descriptions of the different types of boats available and what fits you, terminology, how to, navigation, etc.

I can't imagine having a big dog on a liveaboard. Heck, just taking them out for a day of fishing can be a big ordeal.

Re: I'm from Missouri and looking for knowledge

where do you expect to be in ten years? what do you want to be doing?

now, think of where that dog will be when you're 43. are you sure you want your life decisions revolving around an animals comfort? they're temporary. almost to be considered consumables in a human lifespan.

don't take this the wrong way, but basing plans of this nature on anything to do with a pet seems to me to indicate a serious lack of familiarity with what you say you want to do.

you don't pick a livaboard boat to suit a dog.

save your money until the dog dies, and then get a better boat. and a smaller dog.

Re: I'm from Missouri and looking for knowledge

Who knows canibul I could take him out for a day cruise he could love it and we could get swallowed up by a sea monster. All I know is we will be by each other's side til one of us perishes on land or sea but I have been thinking a boat might not be the best place for him. So like I said I will research everything that I can to be ready when the time comes. Click image for larger version

Re: I'm from Missouri and looking for knowledge

What part of Missouri are you from? I also live in MO. I might be able to point you in the right direction on where to learn to sail.

Don't get caught up too much in this kind of discussion. You don't need a boat that's ready to "go to sea" because YOU'RE not ready to go to sea.

$30,000 can and will get you a get good sailboat ready to live aboard, sail, and take the kinds of short journeys that you will be taking as a beginning cruiser. Do hold some cash for repairs, even a boat in sail away condition may need a new line or two, but don't get carried away with the "blue water" talk.

I highly doubt that would move under its own power. Looks like it's been set up to act as a floating condo

That's a Keys houseboat. It is a place to live. Though it will move and can be piloted, it's purpose is to be semi-permanently installed at a slip.

This is not a cruising vessel. It might not have an engine installed, and if it does it may not have been out of it's slip in 20 years.

Ok, edit:
It's on a mooring ball, not on a slip. That is not normal. For a cheap place to live, it's okay if you are desperate for a home in the keys.

I don't know what else to say. It says right in the description "houseboat". That's the equivalent of "Trailer Home" in land-based terms.

Seen this boat it has none or no motors and.need to be towed to move. Key West mooring field is a real bear in the winter. I know as I lived there for two years. Prior owner of this boat had a great dane size of a small pony, used a ramp and to did not work well
