Re: Opposition to liveaboards

I am by no means rich. I own a 30 year boat. I have worked hard for what I have and continue to do so. I make no apologies for having and owning a house and view it as a sound financial investment as well as a place to live. I am not a minimalist by any means, but try and use as much green environmental products as possible and live my life trying to contribute to others as well as enjoying it or myself and my wife.

Our boat and club is a means for our family to be together in simple surroundings without a lot of the hustle and stuff we are bombarded ith in our jobs. I love almost all aspects of sailing. A reasonable extension of this logic is to say that just because I have not been hit by falling space junk for 25 years it surely could happen and I should worry about it. have worked my way up over the years like many others from a hobie cat, to a small keelboat, to a 28 Islander, to our current 35 C&C. I have enjoyed each and all of these boats. I like to race, cruise and just hang out in any way on our boat. There are no free lunches in life. I make no apologies for what I have, and it des not define me other.
