I love the idea of this book, but there's so much that's not there. I love reading about people who leave their mortgage dependent, month-to-month existence to go do something different and real. This book is a quick, easy read, but lacks depth. There are times it feels like the author is setting up a story, only to let it drop. There was way too much on the guys medical clearance. The picture is the same at the start of every chapter. I'm glad I read it, but if you want a deeper read try Walden on Wheels by Ilgunas.

Really enjoyed the thought provoking process of getting from idea of the lifestyle change, through to reading about the sailing trip. Some of the budgeting parts were very interesting, and the thought of cutting back on possessions is something we could all benefit from! It was a good hybrid story of how to do something, and a real life story about putting it in practice with some of the good and bad that unexpectedly happened. Could have had a bit more personal details about income and how the family felt about things along the way, but not everyone wants to have all their personal details in their book, and I do understand that. It was an easy to read story and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

A quick read with lots of info. I agree totally on how the author feels about the workplace and I give him a high five to having enough guts and motivation to enjoy his life while he's still young enough to enjoy it. I know where that place is that asks you to name a song when you order, that's one of the best places in the Keys! Sometimes they ask for a movie or a city! I'd recommend this to anyone who needs some motivation to put a plan into place to break away from aging in a cubicle, and enjoy living!

Really great little tale of someone who took control of his life to live the way he wants to. I am inspired to do the same thing, only in an RV and not on a boat. Book needs some editing, but it's not too bad.

A wonderful fast read that is both informative and humorous. A perfect summer book to
read in an afternoon at the beach and dream of following ones own dreams.

When your front cover starts off with a misspelling, there's a problem (cubicle, not cubical). The number of word spelling errors and occasional syntax errors was quite large, but in this case I could still give the book a 4 because I knew the author wasn't a professional writer and the book still accomplished what I was reading it for: information on what it's like to live aboard a boat.

Light hearted book that makes us all want to run away and join the circus. Conrad has many good tips for living your life on your own terms - chief of which is getting rid of all debt. I whole heartily agree with him, being debt free gives you options in retirement and before that most people just dream about.
