I live on a boat. I blog about life aboard sometimes.

If you already live aboard, want to live aboard, or simply have that dream; check out the following communities and pages that are all about the lifestyle.
This is a community you can join. It’s not all sailors. There are folks with motor vessels as well. It’s very active and chock full of useful information, pictures and stories for liveaboards.
LIVE ABOARD BOATS
Another fine community for you to join; Welcome aboard, this room is for all that live aboard, or hope to one day. We are here for fun, facts and camaraderie.
Seven Seas Cruising Association
The Seven Seas Cruising Association is the oldest and largest worldwide organization supporting the liveaboard cruising lifestyle.

The liveaboard community is a great one to belong to. Boaters are nice and quick to make friends. They are also quite willing to share their experience or expertise with fellow boaters. Someone is always there to lend a hand. Join these groups, and follow Wally and you’ll find more info than you can process. Jump right in and ask a question, or several. Discussions are almost always productive and questions get answered for you.
While you’re hunting down these groups, feel free to stop and give a “Like” to Leap of Faith/Quit Your Job and Live on a Boat.
