Re: Practising to be a liveaboard

I tell people to imagine sitting on their bed and looking around their spacious bedroom, now imagine everything in your entire apartment or house and all the walls and countertops and shelves those things belong to, to be brought to an arms length. Now negotiate walking around, getting ready for the day, making dinner and having people over. That's what it's like living in a boat... at least part of it.

Another thing is when people ask, "Why don't you buy that?" (clothing, bicycle, luggage, blender) and my answer is always that there's no room left in my boat.
