My husband and I are interested in moving to Florida and living on a yacht and doing charters. Does anyone out there have any advice about living on a boat?

Wow. I'd not have the courage to live on a boat, not having a land home to go to. But I'm getting old. I might have been willing when I was younger. I don't know much about boats and really don't know anything about having a commercial yacht for doing charters. But I have a friend who does. I will send her the link to this discussion and maybe she will respond. Where would you be moving from? Will it be a big climate change for you? I didn't like the heat and humidity in Florida, but it might be more bearable on the water. The sun would be hard on your skin, so use block generously. Skin cancer is on the rise since the atmosphere has changed dramatically. And stock up on the large sizes of zip-lock bags. You can keep your clothes and other items sealed in them and no matter how humid or wet it becomes you can have fresh, dry clothes. [We've used them when camping. It is great in a rainy spell to pull out dry, clean socks that smell fresh and sweet!] Good luck!
