Hey folks, I am a 36 year old white male living in Dania Beach Florida. Due to several reasons I am disabled, and waiting on disability. I have been around boats all my life, fishing, cruising, and just having fun. I have always dreamed of living on a boat, just me myself and I. I enjoy things like rodeos, fishing, camping, boating, travelling. Looking forward to reading and being part of this forum.

Welcome aboard. Disability is hardly a stranger for many live-aboards. My Admiral suspects I must be mentally disabled to even be involved in boating. Researching the different styles of vessels is fun. Choosing a layout that best facilitates ones disability may take a lot of information gathering AND getting aboard more than a few. Keep us informed on your journey.

Hi., Cowboy. I'm a 77 year old lady with a physical disability. My dog and I live aboard and sail my 30' catamaran If I can do it, you can do it.

That reminds me, Helen. How has it been getting around that Cat? Plenty of room on deck, I know, but what about the steping from the cockpit and down into the hulls? I’m still jealous of your huge shower!

Tex, and Justin; I've found getting around on the cat to be very easy. I hang on a lot, I've found more problems getting on and off with some docks, but over all it's not hard. And I get better as time goes on. I've fallen twice so far, once in the shower, and once in the saloon. Note to self, hang on when puttin g away groceries. With one step down into the cabin, and two into each hull, it's not a problem.

Falling in the shower!? This is a consequence of having a shower big enough to fall in! Even I could fall in your shower. Hell, I could probably do Pilates in your shower. :roll:

You probably could do pilates in my shower, Tex. :D I've since got a shower mat, which gives me better footing.
