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

If you have ever baked a portable VHF and GPS pre-heating the oven cause you forgot you put them in there at the last lightning storm!

Or you visit friends for the holidays and get upset cause the run the water while washing pots.

Or you visit friends and bring all you laundry like a college kid.

Hell yeah! Or acting like 16-year olds trying to be quiet as possible so your dock neighbor doesn't hear while working on something on his boat topside.

Also like the laundry college-kid bit- we do that whenever we go to my sister's McMansion.

Can't say I agree with that one at all. In most marinas in which I've lived aboard, it was the liveaboards who constantly "fixed" the halyards of the daysailors who didn't know better than to stow their halyards properly.

Show me a marina with a zero liveaboard population, and I'll show you a far noisier marina than one with a significant number of liveaboards.

So- having wilder sex will keep me from hearing the halyards slap??? Why hasn't anyone explained it that way before? Thanks tager! Of course the next day the complaints from my boat neighbors may be worse than the halyards!

That's the best argument I've ever heard for switching to a monohull. Do you actually do this?

Now I want one!

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

halyard slap causes fractured and ruptured halyards--damage!!!! i notice it and it keeps me awake if happening.. not good stuff...as for tv--i aint got one and wont get another... nasty and anti-personal item preventing interaction between humans.

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

When your 15 year old son has taken on odd jobs a the marina and the marina staff, seeing him gathering pulled weeds with his fingers, says, "Jack, we have a rake that you can use." ....and your son asks, "What's a rake?" ....or later, he's proud to master his first attempt at a lawn mower and heard saying, "It's simple, -'pretty much like and outboard!"
