· Doesn't sail enough

Does having all your clothes smell like "boat" appeal to you? How about tracking down the leak that's dripping on your berth in a pouring rainstorm? Dealing with a cranky engine? Rebedding deck hardware? Painting bottom? Stitching torn sails? Walking up to the marina to take a shower?So what do you guys say? Is the life on a boat fun? Or something that should be avoided? Does my idea make sense?
Many of these things can potentially be solved by throwing money at them - at the expense of your budget-friendly housing solution.
And in fairness not all boats have to smell oppressively boaty - my first was way worse than the second, but I didn't live on it. I think my windbreaker still smells like boat.
I think it's an awesome idea at your stage in life. Just know what you're getting yourself into.
