Just found this forum and very happy with all the information! My husband and myself live in Dubai and are planning to have a 55' Trawler (Bruce Roberts design) build in India. The boat will be build in full aluminum and will be used for living aboard.
As we have a dog (German Shepherd) and 2 cats I was just wondering if anyone has experience with living aboard with pets or the full building process?
We will be hiring a wharf to do all the building but am looking for all advice on any pittfalls, things I have to watch out for etc. All help is welcome
We initially would only use the boat for weekend trips (while living on it all the time) and probably go for a long trip (upto 3 years) in another 5 years. Is the 55' the right size according to your experiences? By the time we will travel on it full time our dog most probably will be either old and love to rest or gone.
Thanks again for any help!
