  • Choose and prepare the right boat
  • Provision for long-term cruising
  • Learn what you can leave behind
  • Raise-and educate-kids
  • Get along in close quarters
  • Know what to expect in the cruising life
  • Earn a living, and hold onto the money
  • Keep in touch while making the ocean your backyard
