But if you live aboard, lving on a boat is the greatest deal around, rent/mortgage wise. Personally, I don't believe in unoccupied housing including boats, nor private ownership of land/water, nor non-nomadic existense, but thats a book in itself!
Unfortunately my contact is looking for one he can trailer which also
narrows down the choices. Full keeled boats like the one mentioned
can rapidly become more work and expense than they are worth, in
these days of ever increasing moorage and marina fees. So by the
third winter or so of paying these fees and not having used the boat
much, I can see an owner wondering if it is worth the hassle.
