Re: Tips for Living Aboard Catalina 27'

Those are some good tips also. Especially since Murphy always wants to crew with me.

Re: Tips for Living Aboard Catalina 27'

Smack's boat pics are obviously photoshopped. Who ever heard of a quarterberth that wasn't stuffed with old sails, old fenders, old pfds, various buckets full of old boat bits, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera????????

(I am so glad my boat doesn't have quarterberths, and a curtain to hide the clutter in the V-berth. )

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.

Re: Tips for Living Aboard Catalina 27'

Dude, that starboard quarter berth IS stuffed to the gills with crap. It's just nicely hidden by the seat-back (and my strategic low angle on the photo).

Oh - and I made the cubby sliders from a 2X4 fluorescent fixture lens to get that '70's feel. Blojo would be proud.

I'm with you though...I could live aboard my boat. But no way in hell I would. It's the size of a Federal Prison cell,
I can't even imagine what I would do if I had that much space on my boat...

Though I probably still wouldn't want to weekend on it with Momma and the kids. More importantly, neither would she :-)

Oh man, this thread had me rolling on the floor.

First was the OP- beyond rude, clueless. Hey, if you have all the answers, then why did you post in the first place? SA would have eaten this chick alive in the first 30 minutes.

Smack and the "Smacklings"..."Despotism"... I love it. I totally agree with Despositim. A clean boat is a happy boat, and a clear, peaceful mind.

Hey smackdaddy -

Thanks for sharing these pics. I'm getting ready to live aboard a 34' seafarer for the first time and love seeing how others make it work!

No worries kel. You'll appreciate those extra 7 feet. Then, if you're like me, you'll want 7 more.

Re: Tips for Living Aboard Catalina 27'

I'd live aboard my Catalina 27, but I would need to tow a dingy the size of the SS Titanic to have a place for the contents of my wife's closet!

It's so easy to accumulate "stuff" as the years go by. One of the things I'm looking forward to most with becoming a live aboard is getting rid of a lot of material things and only keeping the necessities.
