Re: Bug out boat

Part of the community I served has a neighborhood where folks have their boats parked on private docks behind their homes. I got called to one of those homes on a Thanksgiving weekend during a windstorm and a widespread power outage. After dealing with the issue, we made small talk about how nice it was to have their trawler parked behind their house. We also talked about how the power outage was affecting their Thanksgiving dinner plans. They couldn't cook their meal. I asked why they just didn't go cook it on their boat. DOH! I was nearly blinded by the light bulb going off in their head.

Is our boat a bug-out boat? Our boat and home are stocked with items and supplies at minimal expense that will make life more comfortable for an extended period of time if the power and water are out.
