I would agree with you familyvan but everyone is a bit different. Three generations of structural and mechanical engineers and not once have we called a mechanic
to fix five cars three boats and three houses. I hope one day to construct a hull
out of welded wire and concrete but I would most likely leave the design for a professional fluids engineer/designer.
And to be honest I feel sailorboy1 has a very valid point. Yes, I am idealistic and really want to achieve everything at once. This can be bad and patience is a virtue. but I also feel that a liveaboard
is manageable for a few years and would be the most economical as well! Inviting friends over and commuting to work
would be tiresome, but hell ill be sailing may through October!
Crex. Great response. Never ever considered trailing. My boat
too weighs approx 8500 lbs. If I could find a comfortable location to store I will definitely consider.
