Welcome Rourkeh, I too have spent time aboard sail and power. If I had to choose, I think that time and health
permitting, I would opt for sail. Living aboard
a good size powerboat is comfortable, roomy and costly (fuel). Living aboard
a sailboat I found efficient, cheap
and loads of fun. The cruising community is thousands of miles long and about a mile wide so you keep meeting the nicest of people. As long as you have your health
and a desire for adventure, sailing is impossible to beat in my opinion. My best memories are cruising aboard my Transpac 49 to Mexico
and living off the sea. My major expense was cervesa... go for it!
