I never though anything of it on land, on a boat I think how much gas and water I am saving by only having to cook once

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

If you hardly ever go into the cupboard or drawer for a dish, plate or silverware. You just reach into the dish drainer and pick the one you've used daily for the last 3 months.

or

If you walk 500 yards roundtrip to the marina head each morning.
