11/18/2008: "Starting Another Year"
Itís been four years since we bought Hi Flite. Over that time we have done a lot of work on projects, spent a bit of money for repairs and updates and spent some quality time sailing and motoring. This being November it also just over three years that we have been living aboard. Usually when people learn that we live on a boat their response is that they just couldnít do that. Sometimes it is a real challenge. We have limited space for possessions, often joking that everything must have two uses or it canít come aboard. There is the advantage that when we go somewhere we donít have to plan what to take. We just take everything, including the kitchen sink, with us.
Would we do it again? You bet. This is a very well designed and built boat that should take us wherever we want to go. Living aboard saves us a lot of money we would otherwise be spending on rent or a mortgage and of course on all the things we would need to fill that space.
So, here we go, starting another year.
