Thumbs up A New Chapter in the Book of Life

Woot woot

We are finally moving aboard our Present 38 full time. The journey and downsizing was a year in the making.

Observations to follow...

Congrats! We have be livaboard for almost 2 years. We finally emptied our storage unit last fall and the Admiral is sending a lot of stuff off to the kids. We are almost there! If you don't use it in the past year, chuck it (except tools) and if you buy a new shirt, then chuck the old one.

I envy ya. My Admiral still has a huge storage here in the US and another one in Germany. She hasn't made any progress in some time now, and it's on the bottom of the priority list. With the fricken red tide thing going on, all that gets attention is resolving the momentary issues. Oh well, at least I can work on the boat and pretend.

Congratulations. A thread about what you experienced along the way and what you experience in the future would be interesting to read.
