oooh soo cool! did you do this? I lived on a sailboat for a few months with one of my girlfriends when I was a teenager. We didn't ever go sailing as it was her aunts boat and she didn't give us the okay for that. I would love to live on a boat again someday. One thing I really regret was not taking a semester at sea when I was a student at university of california.

be good family...

Minnow - I live on a  35' sailboat with my husband, 3 month old, and our 35lb. dog. We've been living aboard for 4 1/2 years and love it.  In fact, we love it so much that we decided we need a bit more space and my husband is working on our new home, a 45 footer. 


There are a fair bit of families living aboard and blogging these days, me included


Let me know if you have any questions.
