    You don't know how many times I've told my wife now that the kids are grown and left home. Lets just get a sailboat and head out for where ever we end up.

    Ditto but I would want a shower stall separate from a hose over the head, more room and storage, etc. I guess that puts me at the 36DB or above.

    Some other brands may be better suited to live aboard.

    can't say i'm in any competition for the title but man, am i jealous. i'm not sure what your situation is or why you are doing this but look on the bright side and think of all us "groundhog day" 9-5 clock punching idiots who wish their weeks away so that they can escape to the water. i'm sure theres some comforts of land you may miss on a 24 footer but keep your chin up - theres a lot to be thankful for living the "free" life. everytime i'm sitting in traffic or in some meeting with a guy who thinks he brilliant because he has an MBA i think of doing what you're doing. i wonder, do i need all this? you answer my question. you will do just fine, it may not always be the boating "vacation" of your dreams but that little boat contains a lot more amenities than many other people around the world have been living with for hundreds of years. good luck and i hope you can start a new thread about your journey.

    I remember watching this on PBS last year. Its about a couple who lived on their 26' sailboat. They had three children on it and sailed around the world with them. They finally built a house and bought 33' boat. Amazing story.

    I need to know how you are living on a 1990 340da when Sea Ray didn't build a 340da on 1990.

    Rember Ken, when something looks too good to be true, it usually is.

    eman,

    The only advise I will offer is don't keep a gun on board. I think after a while on a 240 Weekender you will be ready to blow your brains out. You won't want any temptation. :smt119

    I would start at episode 1

    http://www.seafaring.com/latsTV

    "Bob Bitchin" started biker magazine and Tattoo magazine. So lats and atts could do well too.

    Oh, I went on a Cat sailboat last weekend. I changed my mind... I could own one of these to sail around the world.
