I see this is old but ongoing thread so I decided to post a reply.
Several years ago I divorced wife #2 and came to the realization the married life and me,...not so good. So I sold house #2, bought a small but comfortable boat and moved aboard. After a year or so I met a women, we hit it off and became boyfriend and girlfriend. The bad part is, is she is not a boat person and has a couple young kids. I let it be known that I was not in the market to be parent again but if she wants to hang out and have fun, that would be great. I even told here about my list of important things in life, God, Country, My Son, my boat, and her. She accepted this list and the fact that the boat comes first.
The problem is that my boat is only big enough for me and my junk and only one settee is open for a bed. Is travel quite a bit for my job but I make it home for a couple of weeks at a time every 2-3 months. The girlfriend almost always takes a week or so off work to spend time with me and since my boat is to small for the both of us, I have to get a hotel room, this gets expensive and it takes away from the boat fund.
There really is no point to this post, I'm just whining. I really like the girlfriend but I am not giving up my boat and I am not giving up living on it.
