I'm planning on living aboard a sailboat and sailing my life away.

I'm planning on living aboard a sailboat and sailing my life away. Any recommendations for books on sailing, living on the water, or even a good pirate/nautical book are appreciated.

    You're not allowed to. You need to get a job and pay taxes. You're avoiding your social obligations for a selfish fantasy.

        It's called growing up. It's not a cage. Just find a job you like.

        Sounds comfy. Storms scare the dog shit out of me though.

          I've always enjoyed storms. As cringe as it sounds its probably because of the psychological storm I was raised in during my childhood.

      lost at sea basically means dead right? it's not like a forest where you can survive on your skills alone right? or can you?

    Bow ditch. Everything you need to know about navigation is in that book. Every US war ship is required to have one. I believe there is an electronic version out as well which would make updating it a lot easier.

    Enjoy constantly painting and scrubbing off barnacles and grime.

      Enjoy waking up at 6AM every morning 5 days a week, shoving some food and coffee down your throat, commuting an hour and guzzling your boss's cock until it's time to go home, your 3 hours of free time before rinse and repeat. Cleaning off some barnacles is relatively wholesome.

    A Boat Owner's Guide to Mechanical and Electrical Systems by Nigel Calder. Really anything Calder has written. If you can't fix most of the stuff on your boat yourself you're in for a really expensive time. And it's just a interesting read.

    Source: I'm a ABYC certified marine technician and I've been sailing for over a decade.

      Is it difficult to get into boat maintenance with no experience? I'm a computer science guy so the only "electrical" experience I have is fucking around with raspberry pi's.

    Kon Tiki is super comfy. Love the chapters where they just float in the Pacific and eat all the fish that jump on board. I doubt rhe seas are as bountiful now after so many decades of overfishing.

      I seriously doubt the open ocean was ever bountiful. It's essentially a desert in terms of biodiversity. When I read that part I had my doubts. Maybe they were sailing over a reef or something.
