Yeah thanks feelgood. I was originally thinking carpet underlay, then someone said polystyrene, but cork is a much more sensible option, I will give Wicks a look. Ta.

LoL. Yeah, that's me.

I once bought one of those air-con units that you get from Wicks, and installed it in the boat. But it used so much electricity through the inverter, that I had to buy a genset to power it. The genset got so hot, that I had to buy a fan to cool it. All history now, I just have the fan left.

You might be a live-aboard, if the noises that raise you from your slumber…are judged by the value in what you think the noise was….

Amen to that. Why does everyone seem to think I live in a tent? And what do they have against dock showers?

YMBALA if you buy your wife a fancy new LED light instead of flowers... and she is more exited about it than she would have been with flowers.

Re: You Might Be a Liveaboard, if . . .

YMBALI you are instructed by family (kidlet) not to talk boating in front of her friends, e.g. going up the mast, fixing spreader lights, pumping the head.....

Well, I haven't had problems with gov. but you know you're a liveaboard when a bank wants some sort of 'fixed' utility bill, and you can't give them one.

they wouldn't take cell, or Sat. TV. they want power, water, sewer, garbage cuz everybody has that, right?

Re: You Might Be a Liveaboard, if . . .

If you know what "ice box" means, it's not just a term your grandother used.
That you consider a frig with a freezer a luxury.

So many people here live "off the grid" that the utility bill thing is not a problem (unless you are asking for state aid to help with bills).

Re: You Might Be a Liveaboard, if . . .

I still love this thread!

YMBALI- Winterizing means making sure your freshwater tanks are full, and system redundancy means three or more ways to heat the boat!

YMBALI- Your must-have winter appliance is a toss-up between a portable generator and a dehumidifier.

YMBALI- Your kids ask "Where are we?" when they wake up from a nap! This is also known as "Am I going to get seasick today?" when asked first thing in the morning. :P

YMBALI- Your family games are "Knot So Fast" and "Battleship" instead of Wii and XBox.

YMBALI- You shop online based on P.O. Box delivery.

YMBALI- Thanksgiving is Cornish game hens instead of turkey due to size constraints.

YMBAL with kids if- The forward head mysteriously becomes inoperable and locked just prior to Santa arriving for Christmas...

YMBAL with kids if- landlubbers watch in horror as your 3- and 5-year old kids climb and stand on the boom while you lazily read the latest sailing mag in the cockpit while tied to a municipal pier.

YMBALI- You wear flip-flops in the winter...to the showers.

YMBALI- LED's are so 5 years ago...

YMBALI- "inverting" on a sailboat isn't necessarily a bad thing!

Re: You Might Be a Liveaboard, if . . .

In the winter I wear dive boots to the showers, I originally got them as "guest deck boots" but now use them to put on quickly in the middle of the night to go to the head.

You might be a liveaboard if you eat left-over spaghetti for breakfast and think nothing of it...
