I think she needs to lose the "bow pulpit". Nothing worse than a stripper with a retainer. I'm just sayin'...

Right, a woman with anchor symbols on her, I think that's the first time I've ever seen a woman who came with honest warning labels.

What are you pretending not to know ?

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.

This thread has been interesting, and definitely shows the wide variety of ideas of boating and living aboard.

Personally, I'm also of the vein of DIY. I've lived on the hook in an expensive part of the country, (Key West, FL), for about $1200 a month (including food, dinghy dock, laundry and all) for a family of 4. We had the occasional more expensive repair, (like re-plumbing the head or re-plumbing the propane), we had to occasionally get a new dingy engine and once had a dinghy and engine stolen... but these costs even including the "big ticket" items, were less expensive then it would have been to live ashore. It was a beautiful experience that I miss. I'm actually looking for another "fixer-upper" now... hoping my kids and I can move back onto a boat this year.
