If all your Tshirs were free. However they have a logo from a race, rally, cruisne or bit of equipment.


Corollary: All your baseball caps have those logos.

Corollary: Any with a year mentioned on them are getting old.

In the winter freeze drying your hair is an option.
you dry your clothes on a life line.
your late for work but the boss says nothing when he sees you still have a life jacket on.

You might be a live-aboard if ... your idea of winterizing your boat consist of replacing the electric fans with electric heaters.

You might be a live aboard if you feel smug inviting someone over and cooking cornish hens, corn bread and rice all at one (after eating kielbasa cooked in a skillet on a camp stove on his boat).

You might be a liveaboard if planning for a fancy meal involves a tape measure and you have to clean the teak oil out of your basting brush.

this is my favorite thread of all time!

You might be a liveaboard if you check for new messages on this thread before reading the latest gun thread.

You might be a live aboard if you do not find it strange for your wine to be sloshing around in it's glass on a windy night.

If your daily workout is the walk to and from the bathhouse, you might be a live-aboard.

This thread is totally cracking me up!

YMBALA ... if you by two of any tool ... expecting to drop one in the bilge.
You're buying stuff in the grocery store and get more excited by thinking of ways to reuse the packaging than the contents.

If you smell the sea, a whiff of diesel, a whiff of seagull poo and some rotten fish and it smells like home. Better than fresh bread or apple pie.
