Thank you for taking the time to look.

Re: Practising to be a liveaboard

I'd say, get yerself a 10 foot dinghy, rig it simply. Spend a week sailing around and sleeping on the beach, eating whatever food you brought, and being cold and wet.
If after a week you think to yourself, "i hope this never ends" then go ahead and become a live aboard on a larger boat...
If however you cant wait for the week to end, so you can return to whatever existance you have on land, then dont bother. you'll just end up paying moorage on something that you dont really need.

Re: Practising to be a liveaboard

Well had I known you were talking about living aboard an Oyster 45, I would have said move into a luxury apartment. I bet you have a lot more room than I had in my last apartment!

Enjoyed the blog, but the "scroll down" windows are kind of slow, not sure if it is your host or an issue with the coding. It would refresh too with the scrolling yin and yang symbol a lot on Firefox(at work) I just noticed it was slow at home on Chrome.

When people here learn they can customize that title, why is "village idiot" the most frequent choice?

Thank you miatapaul for your contribution and you are right. I did a theme update and it has caused problems with Chrome and firefox. IE is fine and a lot faster. I am trying to resolve the conflicts as we speak.
Thank you though as any feedback really does help me try to improve things.
