Something to that, I suppose.

However, as I've mentioned in my marina, its nearly impossible to tell who is living aboard for the summer. As a result, every weekender I know wants to be just like them. It's only the odd inconsiderate boater (weekender or liveaboard) that shakes the peace. Having prolonged junk around would be inconsiderate in our marina neighborhood.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
