I took my gal to the Annapolis sailboat show. We toured some beautiful Island Packet vessels. Roamed around some of those monstrous cats with four double and queen births and enough exotic wood and doodads to put a penthouse condo to shame. I then asked her, could you see yourself living on one of these beautiful vessels. Her response, "Spending some considerable time on one yes, living on her, no". Ha I had my answer, living aboard, full time cruising is not and will not be in the cards in this relationship. Now comes the hard part...
A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.
