I always fear that this is what gives liveaboards a bad rap - those that can't contain their clutter, encroach on their neighbors, and generally let their boats decline because they never plan to actually use them to go anywhere. I distinguish those, some of whom live aboard merely becuase its cheap; from those who live aboard because they love boats and boating. The third class is the cruising boats - the ones with the jerry jugs, windvanes, and other accoutrements of needing to be totally self-sufficient on the hook. At the same time that they look cluttered, I think that's a different case, and different legitimate needs. (and most often their stuff is aboard, not on the dock)

Best of, whatever you decide.
