Re: 5 things You'll Learn About Yourself living on A Boat

Great bit of writing Emma! But, of course, you are dealing with temperatures that are always somewhere between deliciously pleasant and a tad uncomfortably warm. Still, it is amazing how the desire for a bath can outweigh one's dislike of cold water when traveling out of the tropics. As far as relieving oneself, urine is sterile, unless you have a UTI, and a saline solution, so not much danger of polluting the ocean there. Hang on, one hand for you an one for the boat at all times!

I definitely hit that paint where I just need to bathe, my limit is about a week before I need to do SOMETHING, even if it's just a wipe down with baby wipes. (babywipe baths is an old military trick, give it a try, it's a useful stopgap)
