three things

I miss having a fireplace, and a hot tub out in the back yard, and a proper work bench with a vice where I can leave the tools out until the job is finished.

On the other hand, a high-def flat screen TV came with the boat, and we're not sure what we're supposed to do with it. There's nothing on that screen as interesting as the view from the cockpit.

The only thing I miss is flush toilets. I get sick of pumping.

Mule,
I am not cruising yet... but as a liveaboard I don't miss a thing .

When I go to my family's house and see all that ice in the bin, well - It may be a bit of a feast for the eyes , but why the heck would I need all that ice anyways? I have a little ice tray on the boat that makes 6 perfect tiny ice cubes. When I make my iced tea (with my 6 tiny ice cubes) and sit in the cockpit, all I can think about is how God spoils me rotten When you are where you want to be, what do you have to miss?

Erika

I might be forgiven that lacking the above information, everyone's opinion is subjective, based on their own situation and needs which includes:
  1. what type and size of yacht they live on
  2. the "amentities" it has
  3. their personal life style
  4. their family/relationship values and needs
Every yacht usually is (unless you have an unlimited supply of money) a mosiac of trade-offs.

Personally, by most standards, I'd like to think my yacht is near my ideal. That said, I could easily identify 10 things I'd like to upgrade and/or change that would make it more suitable to my desires and needs .... including the money I would require to make those upgrades!

It would perhaps be worthwhile for you to provide us with some insight into your yacht plans are (i.e. size, type, equipment planned, etc), and what comprises your #s 3 & 4 above???

I suspect you would gain a lot more relevant information that would satisfy your query, from the wisdom of those who have/are doing what you hope to do .....

I miss cutting the grass, fertilizing the grass, planting the petunias, pulling the weeds, racking the leaves, shovelling the snow, getting stuck in the snow, laying sand or salt down on the snow, clearing ice dams on the roof, the monthly electric and phone bills, hauling all the junk mail to the curb, property taxes, noisy neighbours and the complaints of the aforementioned neighbours.
Now I find some solace by occasionally and only if completely and absolutely necessary by scraping, sanding, painting and changing the oil. Cruising can be very hard on a person. Not having all those chores to keep one busy. One must learn to improvise. More time is set aside for planning and organization. After all a boat is a small place. At times it can take all day to plan that days activity which culminates in the sundowner.
