I'm in NJ and this is my first year living aboard
, what do you think?
As much as I'd like to stay aboard all year...
I REALLY HATE winter weather
it's on the water
or on dirt.
will be cheaper than a slip.
I'll save on electric
Won't have to waste money
on heaters, etc. which will be useless when I finally cut the lines and head
I have to haul out
anyway to do some work
My marina has a pretty long season, so it would only really mean about 3 months out of the water
. I'm also throwing around the idea of going on a mooring
next year, so I could probably launch early.
I'm just thinking, if the plan is to eventually head
South, hauling out may allow me to save a little more, get the loan paid off faster, etc. than toughing it out and staying in the water all year.
