oh, the other thing i did want to mention... some projects are easy to do on a boat (i mean physically onboard) some are hard to immpossible. eg there is no way i could put a table saw in my cabin. so it is very handy to have a pal/sig other that will let you use some garage space as a shop to work on some of the stuff. just something to keep in mind when evaluating the feasability of project work that you need/want to get done. heck the college might even have a shop you could use. happy 4th of july...go find a boat!
