How Can I Help You?

The Boat Galley Resource Center exists to give you a single place to find all the downloads, editable documents, courses and more that The Boat Galley offers. Here you'll find all the free bonuses for being part of The Boat Galley and a few ways to get some extra help.

To make it easier to find just what you need, I've grouped these materials by where you are on the path to becoming a cruiser:

  • Considering living on a boat or cruising but haven't decided yet
  • Preparing to cruise
  • Out cruising
  • Cooking for adventures, whether or not you're planning to cruise (includes RVing, camping, canoeing, off-grid living)

Sign up today (totally free!) to gain immediate access to all of this, plus you'll get a free subscription to The Boat Galley Newsletter.

Downsizing for a Life Afloat

You're excited about the whole "sell it all and sail off into the sunset" thing but . . .

You’re overwhelmed by the thought of actually getting rid of all your stuff. You just want to skip to the part where you’re anchored in a beautiful harbor in the Bahamas! Who doesn’t?!

Downsizing for a Life Afloat, a 4-week course by cruiser/author Chris DiCroce, will walk you step-by-step through the downsizing process and give you the resources you need to downsize your entire home immediately -- without being overwhelmed.

Plus this course will more than pay for itself by teaching you how to get more money for the things you sell and reducing what you'll put in a storage unit.
