After 9 years living in Tokyo, i've decided to move on to the next phase of my life. The decision was between settling down in one place and buying a house or condo, or sticking with my traveling philosophy and buying a boat.
The boat idea won.
Last week I bought a very used Beneteau 390 Oceanis in Florida, and the new plan is to fix it up a bit and sail around the Bahamas for a while.
These floating homes have a surprising amount of electronics on them, including a system of sensors and chartplotters connected through an NMEA 2000 bus which I look forward to hacking with arduino or raspberry pi hardware.
Wish me luck and fortuitous winds on my future journey! I won't be moving out of my Tokyo apartment until New Year's, but i'll post updates as soon as the boat is ready for the trip!You must be Logged in to comment (it's easy)
