A land lubber wanted to call 911 for the very same reason you describe above. It took a few minutes to convince him that I wasn't a damsel in distress but a gal safely anchored and loving the storm. Dirt lovers are a bit odd.

I cannot take credit for this one, it was from a story written by Melenie Neal (I think I spelled it correctly) in Cruising World. It's about being a liveaboard in South Florida. I now adapt it as a YMBAL:
When your neighbor in the slip next to you "cooks" his beef stew by placing the unopened can on his deck so it warms up in the sun by lunch time.

So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” T.R.

You are right, she is. I always liked her father's books and articles.

You use a flashlight to check the contents of the oven.

You might be a live aboard if;
; you go to the grocery store during a storm and can pick out the other live aboards by their wet butts. It's called 'Dinghybutt" if you're interested.
; you go to the store and someone asks you why your butt is wet. They're not live aboards.
; you don't go in the store because your butt is wet. This is usually the woman's reaction to dinghybutt.
