Hello LA Forum members! I am considering the full-time live aboard lifestyle and wanted to go into this world "eye wide open" by learning from all the seasoned veterans on this forum.

Hello, Chuck! Welcome aboard. What kid of life style are you considering? Will you be mostly ina marina, at anchor, or moving about? How luxuriously do you want to live? A/C, washer/dryer? tV/etc. How many and what age people? Past boating experience? SPecial skills (engines, electronics, sailmaking) Health? Disabilities? Pets? Lots of questions to answer to get a usable answer.
