Went to my sisters house for a party, washed all the dishes by hand before it was pointed out to me that the gadget next to the sink is a fancy new invention call a "dishwasher". forgot they existed

Great thread!!

We were on the hard a few weeks ago, every time a car drove past & heard the engine, flexed my knees thinking we were going to get rocked by a wake ...

You might be a liveaboard if...you measure anything big and rule out everything you want because it won't fit down the hatch.

...all your furniture has a UV rate.

...completing a small job requires you to go up and down at least a 1000 steps.

You Might be a Liveaboard

If after several days onboard and a cruise you step on land and your body still wants to act as if it were walking on a moving deck.

If you don't like the neighborhood you just untie and move.

If you try to sleep on land and find you can only sleep in hammock after you rock it.

You might be a live aboard if:

You are content knowing that cruising is boat repair in exotic places.

Corollary:

At the beginning of each boat repair, you must get out every tool on the boat, knowing that the forgotten tool is the one you really need while you find yourself scrunched behind the water heater.

But -- you wouldn't want to live any other way.

Yeppers, aint that the truth!

also, if buying ice is more important than paying the hydro bill, to keep your food fresh.

If you can leap out of a sound sleep at 0dark30, check 3 bearings and return to sleep without missing a beat in the dream you are having.

If having a 3 burner stove with oven is a luxury.

If dinner only involves one pot and a spoon.

If laundry involves a net bag, a moving boat and 50 feet of line.

If a warm rum n coke won't turn your stomach.

if, when you spend the night ashore, you have to move the bed against the wall so you feel like you have a hull to roll over against.

You are staring at this thread through the water spots on your laptop screen that are still there after you left your laptop under that leaky window a few months ago...

You might be a Liveaboard if.. the trunk of your car serves as your 2nd closet.

Ever notice how most liveaboards have a van, station wagon or VW bus as thier car

If when visiting at a house you have to get up in the middle of the night and move from the cushy bed to the sofa because it is more comfortable.

If when visiting on land in a house with a 4 burner stove you only use two burners (I have been doing that all summer)

If you consider a 3 minute shower luxurious

If you think butter is supposed to be soft

Or a truck with a cab on it- got mine right before moving aboard! Still have a 5x5 storage locker, but little by little that is going away, too.

I love soft butter!

You might be a liveaboard if giving your guests a tour of your home takes 30 seconds- 20 seconds to show where everything is, and another 10 seconds to say, "Yep, that's the stove", and "Yep, that's the bathroom", and "The shower is right there.....yes there.....yep!"

in my experience it takes a good 5 minutes to explain to a guest the intricacies of a marine head....finished by directions to the "shore head"

Oh yeah, forgot about the head thing. My typical is 5 minutes to try and explain followed by "If you forget, just look at the directions on the placard right beside you. And when you can't figure it out, just close the lid and I'll flush for you."

you know you are a live aboard when you think of the length of a shower in terms of quarters
