Re: Living on a sailboat

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "camped out" but what would you consider all the thousands of people living aboard to be doing? Of course many of us have boats that are pretty "homey" with many of the conveniences that make living aboard pleasant, such as water, cooking, beds and shelter from the weather.
I've known a few small cat sailors who have tent like structures over the deck as their living quarters and galley at anchor, with the bunks in the hulls, but that's a pretty hard way to go, even in the tropics, and you will most likely NOT get a woman to endure that life too long.
