I don't work aboard per se, but I've taken some conferences and hate it. I don't even like putting on a suit and leaving for work, I prefer to return to my home and change there. The boat is where I go to forget work, as best I can. One thing I absolutely love about my marina is that no one has ever asked what I do for a living and I haven't asked them.

We did have a colleague that spent 6 months of each year on his boat, installed fax, sat phone, laptop, laster printer, etc and called in for every meeting. Connections were often hard and background noise was too. Those he was working with on land absolutely hated him for it. But, he was a jerk anyway so YMMV.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
