You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Ex liveaboard

Long ago, 20+ yrs, I lived for almost two years in a 28 footer. Living at 56' N that required a bit more than a tent and a campingstove. So here's my requirements:
-Heating, if not for anything else, then to ensure that the vessel does not get's stuck in the ice during winters.
-A decent galley including a stove with oven, I like to cook and really missed the oven then.
-Good bunks, sleep is better on decent matresses
-Chart table, I use this as my "office" today. I sometimes work from the boat we have now, and a dedicated workingspace is great.
-Power for my computer (didn't have it then)

If that makes me a phoofy lady, so be it

However the current trend towards bigger boats with all kinds of gadgets, defeats the purpose of having a boat in the first place, if you ask me.

That's just it (20 years ago...). It's the young bucks able to circumnavigate on a raft made from sewer pipes and an upside down garbage can lid. I never see the girls doing that kind of thing. Maybe it's the testosterone, that wonderful male essence that makes a guy shrug and say what the hell. The same stuff I should note that is killed off by age and marriage. The latter state being to androgens like Agent Orange to an azalea. Or maybe that should be Agent Pink.
The biggest reason middle age guys grow boobies and spend weekends browsing at Ikea is cause the ol' lady has removed his superfluous cojones and nailed them to a tree in the backyard to scare away the crows.
Where was I? Oh, yeah, answering my own question.
Now in case I am accuse of being sexist, I fully acknowledge that same gals got gonads like footballs (and they scare hell outta me) but that is rare. Varnished walnut and carrot juicers and feather mattresses from France is the order of the day for most of 'em. And for the poor shlep who wants to go back to his Neanderthal roots is likely to have his mast shoved so far up his backside he can use his bald pate for a masthead light.

Now that we have determined that Giu's offical theme song is Poor, Poor, Pitiful Me, and that Hoffa wants an Amazon warrior princess on his boat, our knowledge base is increased beyond measure.

Though my boat is by no means spartan, neither is it phoofy. I wouldn't be without my dodger, for instance, but then, I like having a place to duck in out of the weather. Different boats, for different folks (what a concept!).

Raft , Sewer Pipes AND an upside down garbage can lid ? Looxury son, looxury. And I thought you really wanted to get back to basics.

Ah, I remember back when I was but a pup crossing the Pacific with nothing but an inflated kangaroo pouch to provide accomodation and living off flying fish gizzards. Those were the days.

Wombat,
It just came back to me why I really like Aussies - A tad strange all of you, right?

Hoffa,
I meant to say in my previous post that I wouldn't change a thing today, but you're right, the Feng Shui stuff keeps popping up (I have three girls in the house).
However at home we try to keep it simple too, so we're not "statistically significant" - So for us the difference between the boat and the house is not as profound.

/Joms

Hoffa, I think you're just cranky because you've spent too much time contemplating the fleshy patch where your nuts used to be. Go sailing.

That said, not all of us are castrating bitches.

Mwah.

Whilst I don't think the castrating part is always intentional, methinks it may be a mite instinctual. Just from a personal point of view, mind you.

The trick as I recall was mustering enough manly arse gas to achieve the necessary height to bite them out of the air.
