more i think you are absolutely correct.
loaded for comfortable cruising, that is where lagoon
excells. Some adventurous boats take only little food
and little else, to keep boat under the limit, and risk starvation on sea, most of time they are fine and get to destination
, once you move on board, order removalists with truck , move things from your house on boat, sell the house, and go on ARC
and do pretty well.
