About To Do It Questions

Thanx for the followup, Jack, and glad you''re having fun! We DO know what you mean about taking hours to get ready to sail. I wonder if this is a special burden for those who work from ''home'' and/or have land jobs requiring dress-up clothes? A dear friend, liveaboard for almost 20 years, says if he''s not ready to sail in 15 minutes notice, anytime, he''s not doing it right. Of course, he doesn''t live in a marina in an East Coast winter ... it takes, it seems, 15 minutes just to disconnect and stow the Big Yellow Cord and the landline (*smile*).

How are you doing with condensation? Our boat was not made for this climate, everything we can reach spends the winter with silver bubblewrap ("Reflectix" from Home Depot) taped over ... prompting a friend to dub us "The couple who sees everything with a silver lining."
