thanks!

Here's my favorite - from my girlfriend when we decided to "go camping" on some nearby islands for the weekend.

"Camping! and I can take all my shoes!"

You might be a liveaboard if you feel like a studio apartment is spacious.

You might be a live aboard if when you walk into a house the first thing that goes through your mind is "look at all that waste space" and how it could be used more efficiently.

You might be a live aboard if you consider a galley where you can reach/do everything with out moving your feet efficient rather than tiny. Compared to a kitchen that is more than 5 times the size of your main cabin and galley combined, not including vertical measurements (the larder in the house I grew up in had double the space of the entire cabin on my boat). Of all the kitchens I have been cooked in, in my entire life I am most comfortable in my galley.

You might be a liveaboard if yout "christmas turkey" is a couple/several of rock cornish game hens (you can cook your entire holiday meal in an hour). Also you consider a duck, not because it is fancy, but it will fit.

Well...we're still in a house, but after 12 pages of symptoms, apparently we're liveaboards anyway!

You might be a... if rather than having several types of shampoo & conditioner, types of soap, shaving stuff, deodorant etc (per person) assorted cleaning gadgets and a whole cabinet full of towels and wash clothes....you have a small "shower kit" with one bottle of shampoo, one conditioner, deodorant, soap shaving stuff and a pouch for quarters... at best you might own an extra towel so the one you used last time has a chance to dry.

on the contrary, you might NOT be a liveaboard if:

1. You have more than one type of mustard in the fridge.
2. You think it's easy to qualify for a library card.
3. You have no clue how many amps you're drawing at the moment.
4. You need to check a tide table to know whether it's currently low or high.
5. You don't remember whether yesterday was windy.
6. You consider CNN a more reliable news source that CF.
7. You check the mailbox every day.
8. You think of mildew as a minor inconvenience.
9. You don't consider your religious denomination to be "Rocna."
10. Your conversations with neighbors never fixate on holding tanks.

OOoooooo, I like it! Ok- off the top of my head...

YM-NOT-BALI:
1. You go home to take a shower.
2. You go home to do laundry.
3. You routinely cook 2 veggies at the same time on two different burners.
4. A power outage ruins your evening.
5. You shop at Costco.
6. You don't remember the last time you used the key to open the freshwater tank deck fittings.
7. You prefer the local news for the latest weather.
8. You don't know how to grill.
9. You have room to put your groceries in your trunk.
10. Getting underway requires more than one dock cart trip!

Ah man - you all make me so jealous

I can't wait to get on my boat and stay there!

Sure, it'll be completely different than I've been through before... but it's the dream!

you might be a....if real sale value was not a major consideration in buying your new home, size is not defined buy 1000's of sq ft floor area and you really will own your home for all or most of the time you live in it (rather than paying the bank for the privilege of saying you own something you could never actually afford). I paid for my "house" in cash....how many landlubbers can say that.

You might be a liveaboard if your method to rearrange your furniture is to either put stern or bow into the slip to manage the hot afternoon sun. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
