CaptainForce will become famous soon enough
From the time we first moved aboard in '72 until 2002 we did have jobs ashore and cars and children in school most of that time, but we still avoided dock boxes or dock gear and we could leave the dock for even an afternoon sail quickly at whim. After retiring in 2002 we have had no cars (actually Nothing owned that's not aboard) and we have kept no permanant slip. We have sometimes stayed in one place for a few months, but we have kept mobile, usually cruising about 3 to 4 thousand miles/year. Many do more, but we're steady long term cruisers. One simple rule,- everything stays on the boat and ready to sail. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
