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.

Not sure. If he worked on a floating resturant in Portland then it was definitely Dimillos. It is the only one there.

Thanks. I don't live aboard, but I do winter in. I have no cover, so I still shovel snow off the decks. But I did sail yesterday.

Now, if I could only convince my wife...

It is nice to see an article that is positive! Most of the time it is articles about how these miscreant liveaboards are ruining the world. When the bottom line is that it is some developer that wants the space. Seems to be happening in the North West a lot lately. I will be living aboard this spring, and will be doing it year round in New York. I must say it seems that Maine has a real respect for the individual from everything I have read and that is reflected in the tone of the article.

I am a New England live aboard to

I live on a '33 sloop down in Gloucester harbor on Cape Ann. I heat with a propane camp stove and a solid fuel burner. My boat isnt wrapped so I do have to shovel when the boat gets a little low from the weight but I like to keep it on there for insulation. Foraging for firewood is a bit difficult with the four feet of snow about but luckily im slipped up near some boat builders with plenty of hardwood scraps. It seems Im ruffing it a bit more despite the slightly milder climate. Right on to you my fellows chasing the dream!
