Re: Smallest Liveaboard?

Just about every year there is a small fleet (3 to 6) of the MacGregor 25 that make the 6500 mile Great Loop, over the course of 1 or 2 years.

Thanks for that! I've always loved those cars, and the Karmann Ghias. After seeing that, I suspect that the poor performance of the Beetles was due to all that paint weight...

Re: Smallest Liveaboard?

We live full time in our RV. It's a 38' bumper pull travel trailer with triple slides. I know that we could definitely live aboard a monohull, but I also know that there is DEFINITELY NO WAY I/we could live aboard my Hunter 27. I don't know how y'all do it.

Because mooring fees are by boat length. A 30ft boat costs 50% more to moor than a 20ft boat.

If you're really into the minimalist thing, there's the Row Cruiser.
