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.

well i'm getting in good with the owner of the closest marina. i'm working for him and i think he's taken a liking for me. as of now, he simply has running water and electricity on his dock. he plans to upgrade it a lot, but all i will require is a pump out station. i doubt he will get much farther than that, because he seems to be quite a bit more busy than he would like to admit.

i want to haggle with him a bit, and see if i could get to stay there for less if he made fewer improvements (he only has 4 slips, and one is taken with a live-aboard already, so me talking to him is likely to sway his mind pretty easily). say he only provided parking, water, pump out, and electricity. what might be a price i could shoot for then? $350 a month? that's my goal.

Is there a gym near buy? That is often a good spot to find a clean shower. Around here there is "Planet Fitness" and they offer a corporate rate of $10 a month. If you ask for it they will normally give that rate to you. You can also use the equipment if so inclined!

May not really need pump out facilities there, if the marina has a bathroom and shower... since you should use shore-side facilities as much as possible.

yeah there are a few gyms near by that i already can use for free. that's a good idea. i'm not sure that this marina will have those shore facilities by the time that i get there. we'll see.

i have a new question not though. i may have to start a new thread if nobody looks at this one.

i'm looking and looking for diesel heaters that may be well suited for a boat of about 27 feet. just to heat the salon. i would surely rather have it be very efficient than to have the ability to make it more than 80 degrees in there. i could deal if it only got the salon to 65-70 in the winter as long as it didn't use much gas. any suggestions? i searched google for a while and came up with nothing suitable. they were all way too big.

Kaz...go here: Hamilton Marine - Search

and type in "Refleks" for a bunch of choices out of the ordinary. Probably too expensive but it may giv you some ideas.

If you are cooking with propane...perhaps a cozy force 10 propane heater would be better.
