Tauras, sympathies for your situation, but congrats on the attitude! We''re both able liveaboards so have no personal experience to offer. In our area there''s an organization "Chesapeake Region...

Liveaboard Washington DC

Gangplank would be fun, but unfortunately they have a waiting list right now for liveaboards (not enough infrastructure). And there''s an additional income tax if you live in the District. Metro is...

About To Do It Questions

Thanx for the followup, Jack, and glad you''re having fun! We DO know what you mean about taking hours to get ready to sail. I wonder if this is a special burden for those who work from ''home''...

Only one food group?

Nope, not enough. There are 8 amino acids (building blocks of protein) that the human body cannot synthesize, therefore you need to get all 8 from your food. Grains in general have only 6 of the 8....

Jeff_H & others on the Coast & Chesapeake
