I know we have at least a few live-aboard members. Does anyone want to share their story? I've been house-hunting since Dec '14. Last summer I grew tired of being outbid and outpaced on the real estate market, so I put my home for sale so I'd be ready to pounce on the next "right house" that came along. My home sold almost immediately, and then I realized that I'm not the kind of guy who pounces on huge investments, no matter how "right" they seem... So I put everything into storage and moved onto the boat full-time. I don't regret it for a minute, but after 18 years with this 400DA, NOW I understand what the bridge-boat owners mean by "cave"! The hull has started to close-in on me a little, but I'm sure it's nothing that a spring boat ride can't solve. Our marina has at least 8 live-aboard boats, so we have good deal of community/camaraderie. I don't miss ANY of the stuff in storage. I missed entertaining over the holidays. I mitigated that by replacing the radar dome with a 4' tree, putting lights on the rails and downloading a "fireplace app" on the AppleTV. (if I had to do it over again, i'd just go to Florida on Dec 19th) Tonight is Pizza Tuesday - the "floating homeless" all meet at a local bar for beer and half-off pizza. Life is good.
