Have fun!

Hi Mike and CONGA-RATS!!! Gonna take a lot of adjusting to the living space. You can do it. Remember onboard a boat .......everything must have a dual purpose.
I had a Coronado 25.Comfortable enough for overnighting and weekending and gunkholing. A bit small for liveaboard though. Don;t know if you had the course yet But I highly reccommend the Coast Guard Auxillary Safe Boating Course.( Hey you may know it already but that little course will knock off 10% or so off of your boating insurance. ( Maybe more....) so it is worth it. Plus you might even gain a little knowledge

What is the name of your new home? Going to leave it as she was named, or give her a new one?

If you ever get the time, we are a "straight shot" down and just off the ICW. I can give you some info on the local waters if you like. You could even do Cumberland Island, among numerous others.
Let us know and CONGA-RATS again.
Roll with the punches, play all of your hunches...come what may...

Congrats LaTda! I'm sure you'll love living aboard, I did it for about 5 years and hope to again someday. My new (to me) Catalina 250 is a little too small for living aboard but my next baot will be perfect.

sorry for the lack of updates :oops: :lol:
It took awhile to get her down here from the top of the Chesapeake to the bottom ~ 200 miles or so.
We got holed up for 48 hours @ the Smith Point Marina due to gale winds & small craft advisories. The gracious owner, Dan, even brought us a caraff of coffee on the 2nd morning :o (we're not worthy!)

Anyway it was tiring- no- exhausting but fun :D :P
we had vhf radio & fuel delivery problems but worked through them both.
I took lots of pictures & will combine it with excerpts from the Captains Log & share with y'all as soon as I can :wink:
