Your Vessel Info: I have cruised for multiple weeks on a 20 ft Lysander and can tolerate compact living. Now I want a vessel which can be sailed from time to time and provide a home for me for the entire year. All this for little money! I am a good allround fixer-upper.

Hello - from wannabe live-aboarder

The forum suggests that I introduce myself, so who am I to argue?

I am an Englishman currently living in Germany, but for a mix of reasons thinking about returning to the UK. I'm retired, living on a small pension and anticipate that my modest means would only permit land-based living accommodation of the least pleasant variety. But through my life I have had quite a lot to do with yachts. For a while I specialised in osmosis/blister repairs with epoxy for poorly built glassfibre hulls. I've also 'crewed' on an ancient Lysander from Scotland to the Baltic and helped with ferrying a Hurley from the IoW to Scheveningen, NL. The Lysander needed work in many areas and that is how I spent several summers on the Island of Fehmarn, Germany.

Given all that, I welcome any suggestions (apart from 'forget it') about what sort of boat would make sense and locations. And if attractive nautical women find my self-description fascinating - simply reply with photo of boat and bank statement*.

*As once viewed on a sign in a marina in Canada.

I am new on this forum - it appears that if you click on my username you can read what it is that I'm looking for help on. If that doesn't work, let me know and I will post the same content in this into piece.
