One of the two people that inspired me to get a boat and move onto it was Phil Wampold, a guy I used to work with (the other person was the amazing Meredith Lewis).
Phil moved onto a boat and then set off to sail around the world on his 27 foot Ketch Bonne Femme, single handed, and is currently in Australia somewhere.
His blog is here https://bonnefemmesails.wordpress.com/
