Cool, short (8 min) documentary on a guy who lives on a sailboat.

I know that sort of life isn't for everyone, but he has some great things to say about money.

Agreed, great video!  After a friend of mine started giving me sailing lessons on lake Michigan, it was actually the idea of the total freedom in a live aboard situation that initially drew me to the idea of FIRE.  Turned out it's not for me, but in a way, I owe my financial security to that old dream.

Mustachians are not the sort of people who sit around moaning about how the government is keeping them down.  We’re the people who look at what we got, figure out what we don’t like, and fix it.
