    Stay Aboards and Active Cruisers

    I wonder just how many BOC members are Stay Aboards and or Active Cruisers???

    I'm a Stay Aboard. What does that mean??? Well... I have a house but choose to stay on my boat much of the time. I am running about 50/50 at present.

    As soon as the weather breaks here in Alaska i'll be transitioning to "Active Cruiser" status. I suppose that is a stay aboard who is traveling.

    So... Here on the BOC how many actually use their boat as a 2nd home, meaning staying aboard either seasonally or full time.

    Are there any active cruisers amongst us?

        I intend to be cruising full time Spring 2022. I need to prepare and sell my house, Sell motorcycle, truck, ATV. deer mounts etc.

        Irony is mostly ready. I've upgraded the battery system for liveaboard, diesel heat, davit, galley, upholstery and more. Still do do over the winter are risers, some hoses and a stubborn fan coil installation in the pilothouse.

        Unlike Kevin's anticipated upcoming trip, I can go in three directions from here and haven't decided which direction to take

          Live aboard full time. We sold our house six years ago and the boat is our only home. We also actively cruise ( mostly local). I don't think we have ever been more content.

              It is a simple life! Yes you have boat maintenance, but you do not have all the work of taking care of a house and a yard. Nor do you have the internal pressure to acquire things since they won't fit in the boat!

                We live aboard Dock Holiday for summer here in Nanaimo, BC and then fly home for the snowy winter in Toronto Ont. This winter we hope to sell up and move here in the spring. Would have done it 2 years ago but Covid-19 hit just as we had the house listed. We cancelled and hunkered down until we finally made it back this July.
