Hello, new friends.
Gosh, so glad I'm here. Makes this whole adventure begin to feel real. My husband and I want to move the family
on board w/in 2 years and set sail. We have 5 kids
- currently 10, 9, 3.5, 2, and 11 months. Our plan is to stay coastal for a few years b/c one of the kids
has a special medical
need (speech therapy due to cleft palate). As we've begun to tell people about our dream of raising the kids as liveaboards, they all look at us like we're crazy. Maybe we are!
It hasn't crossed my mind that we CAN'T do it, but the logistics haven't yet been worked out. I'm here to lurk for awhile, if that's okay, and to ask a few questions while we're piecing our dream together.
Husband is a captain
already (I'm a semi-novice) and wants to go big with a boat
. He's looking at a 65' cat. I'm thinking that's a whole lot of boat
. As we're talking more about it, though, (we talk of nothing else these days
maybe he's right. With 7 of us and our cat.....1500 sq feet isn't so much space for living quarters. Any of you out there with a bunch of kids? I'd love to hear from you!
Glad to be here! Thanks for sharing.
