Re: Working while living aboard

I work full-time in business casual attire - cook breakfast then do 12 minute dinghy ride followed by 1/2 mile walk to work out and shower/change. 1/2 mile walk to car. In a downpour, I put on my foul weather gear and keep my clothes dry in a backpack, which is the only "inconvenience" I think of as suffering. Now I'm on the hook in Salem/Marblehead Harbor - the winter, I'm at the dock.

The absolute bliss I feel with that first cup of coffee in my cockpit, watching the sunrise, the families with 9 ducklings, the Terns dive-bombing the bait fish next to my boat, casting for Stripers while still in my pajamas, etc. etc. etc. - far outweigh the rainy day(s). It's not for everybody, but it IS for me.
