Jim (aboard Argo),
You should probably cross post your response on the living aboard BB!
Regarding men''s minimalist living requirements, I just saw the following item in "News of the Weird", a golden oldie from a 1999 column:
Mr. Wai Y. Tye, a retired Raytheon Corp. chemist, has lived without complaint in the same 200-square-foot room in the downtown Boston YMCA continuously since 1949, according to a January Boston Globe story. "When you''re busy working and playing tennis," he told a reporter, "when you come home, you don''t have much time to take care of an apartment." The bathroom is down the hall to the left, and he said he does not mind the exposed pipes or the linoleum floor or having to use a hotplate.
