I was looking around my computer files, and rediscovered this old cherry. I don’t know where I “stole” it, so cannot properly attribute (anyone know who wrote it?).

Ye Infallible Rules for Yacht Accommodations
(Revised 1492)

1. People, when going to sea, have no need for as good food, as good rest, as comfortable places to sit, as much warmth or protection from the elements, as those same people would require ashore.

2. People who go to sea are six inches shorter than landlubbers, have better padding about their skulls and shins, and are much more adept at climbing.

3. People who go to sea prefer deprivation. They will put up with anything, so long as the boat is salty and has a cute name.

Notice: Any naval architect who designs beyond these rules, shall be considered in violation of the ethics and trust of yacht design, and said naval architect may be investigated to determine his loyalties and/or intents.

Easy

GM:
Well, that just simplified my life. No more planning, preparation, repairs, navigation, anchoring, immigration/customs, provisioning, berth dancing, lugging gear, dodging comm'l ships, getting wet, aches from a full day, multilayered clothing, napping instead of sleep, problem solving, creative solutions, squeezing possessions into small spaces...........I'll just sit on the Dock of The Bay & watch the tide roll away
P.S. Then go home & sleep soundly in a King Size bed
