No, it's called comfort. We are the same people on a boat as we are are at home. Our need to be fed and abide in a comfortable atmosphere are the same. We like to have hot water
for coffee or tea, to defrost frozen food
A microwave does that whether on a house or a boat.
Why swelter when you can be cool and comfortable in the cabin
? An air conditioner provides that.
Some prefer electric
stoves because they obviate the need for a dangerous gas system.
I just don't understand why people have to equate modern day boating
with yesterday's raw camping adventures in the backwoods.
We have moved on.
PS we have 2 televisions and could do with a third. On the bridge :-)
