Re: Living on a sailboat

Think I'll get some ice cubes out of the fridge, some Margaretta mix, rum, melon liquor and tequila from the bar, and mix a green coconut margaretta in a cocktail glass - yep, on the camper/boat. Whoops, the AC just kicked on, gotta' check the email, and I'm working on a new song on the keyboard. Imagine that. All while campin' out.

Cheers,

Gary

Re: Living on a sailboat

We click on "living on a sailboat" and we're asked "anyone ever camped out on the water?" ...What is the OP talking about?... which are we talking about here? Sailing a small boat somewhere with a tent and sleeping bag? Anchoring out and sleeping outside in the cockpit? or living on a sailboat somewhere with more modern conveniences down below?

Living on a sailboat doesn't mean that you are camping on the water. Camping on a sailboat is like camping in your backyard behind the porch, it's not really camping. (In the sense of in the wild, out there, on ground) You can pretend though, I guess. Even small boats have porta potty's or something, foot-pump sink, etc.

Maybe be more specific and this thread will go somewhere.

Re: Living on a sailboat

Well, I camp on my 23 footer at least twice a week, then have to go home and do the work thing.

I have the boat outfitted quite nicely, but it's basically camping. No fridge, cable or shower. I'm usually very comfortable.

Can't wait to get to the boat on Friday.

Re: Living on a sailboat

Check out the OP's previous postings. We probably won't hear from him again for a while and then he will pop up with some other basic question that need's further explanation, like "what's the best tow vehicle to tow a sailboat" and we won't hear back from him on that either.

Re: Living on a sailboat

I have been living on my 41 year old 32feet boot for about 3 months total now. Its the same is living on a similarly old campervan with the lack of luxuries (no shower, microwave, refridgerator, airconditioner etc) and maintanance needs. I assume living on a brand new boat is similar to living on a brand new campervan

there is of course the difference between being docked and being anchored, espescially if you have no motor dinghy but a sea kayak like me that always guarantees a wet ass if you go anywhere off of your boat.

And for real camping, you can put a hammock between your forestay and mast

Are you suggesting that the OP is a sockpuppet or troll, who merely starts threads for the purpose of generating communication?

I think maybe he is.

I think it would be hard to do a circumnavigation without camping out.
Then again, this isn't camping -

Re: Living on a sailboat

Nice, real drawers for clothes! I have a duffel bag for that purpose.
