I have purchased a 1971 Chris Craft 33ft. to live aboard. It's also my first boat
. Whole new world for me! I'm very excited. So far I'm learning
alot but have also gotten a little overwhelmed at times. But I went in this knowing it wouldn't be easy. Right now I stay onboard on the weekends. I'm hoping to be onboard full time by the end of the month. My first issue had been that the 2 350 engines are seized up. But I have a mechanic
that says he can fix them. I'm going to be moving my boat
to a different marina. The slip is at a military marina right now. I've also been trying to decide which marina to go with. My choice has been a marina that offers alot of community programs but a distance from where I work
. Or one closer to work
that's $100 more a month and doesn't offer anything extra except being in a populated bay. I've pretty much decided to go with the cheaper one that offers more but further from my work. That one also has the uscg come and offer free courses on several different topics about boats. Which right now I can use all the info and advise I can get. I'm also new to the forums
but I've already had alot of my questions answered from reading posts. I'm very grateful to have a place I can go to get answers from people who have been there done that.
