For many years I've wanted to live on a sailboat, but I never bought s/v Moonshine with the intention to live aboard. When my personal situation changed in September, 2013 I suddenly found myself in a position to do it.
For the first few months the challenges I had were trying to see my boat as a home rather than the recreational item that it was before and also adjusting to the smaller space. I thought if I liked the live-aboard lifestyle that I would likely upgrade to a larger sailboat, but nearly a year after moving on board I can say that I loved the lifestyle and what I first saw as a small space I realized was more than enough room for me.
If you are anything like me, you love working on your boat. Check out some of my regular maintenance, DIY and How To videos.
