While I'm a newbie to sites such as Cruisers Forum my husband and I been living aboard
a 1979 41" Morgan
OI for the past 33 years. We loved living aboard
and cruising the eastern seaboard and the Bahamas
. However, unfortunately with my husband's health
we have been tied to a dock
for the past 2 years. While we started life aboard in New Jersey
, I'm happy to say we've been living in sunny Florida
for the past 24 years. Sad to say it is now time to bid the good life aboard our boat goodbye and settle on land.
Anyone who has moved from either a boat or a house after 33 years knows what a job it is. I can't believe all the nooks and crannies that we had filled with assorted goodies. I never thought I'd stop taking things off the boat. The lesson learned is stop being such a hoarder of "I might need it" as we settle into life ashore.
Not sure how good the market it is for selling Morgans but I thought I'd try on my own before handing it over to a broker. That 10% commission is a killer!
Anyone who has words of advice from which I might benefit will be greatly appreciated.
Wishing all of you safe passage
on all your trips.
