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

Haha, good ones!

One that is seasonal:

YMBALI- You hit the snooze button in the morning, not to sleep in another 8 minutes, but to open up the door to the head to that it can warm up a little bit before you get up!

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

Once upon a time we had invited a live aboard couple who were hauled out to stay in our beach house. In the middle of a dead calm night came the initial crash of thunder followed by a deluge. I could not resist shouting "We're Draggin!" , and laughing when they both ran out of the bedroom stark ass naked!!!

My dock has a 30amp breaker but I run everything through a power strip w/ 15amp circuit breaker (my shore power cord has a 30amp male end and standard but industrial strength 15amp female end) I have never tripped a breaker.

Let me guess: bachelor?

(You're probably a liveaboard if your friends brag about living on 15 amps.)

And of course extra (per person) laundry and dish soap. Though to be fair gender related power consumption think of men and their power tools. Only time I ever have to turn off my heater is when using a heat gun.

A liveaboard friend of mine was also invited to stay in someone's guest room in a house.....in the middle of the night he got out of the queen sized bed and moved to the couch.
I spent a winter in my boat on the hard while the marina built new docks.....land just doesn't move right

You can take a shower using 2 gallons or less of water, or take a shower on your swim platform.

Yes I use shore power, but last month my power bill was $4.50....and winter has started to rear it's ugly head. It will be higher after I did my big heater out of storage.....I have a bag of teak next to me for tonight's warm

I don't measure showers in gallons, but rather quarters
2 quarters/min is possible.....3 quarter/min is a pretty nice shower a 4quarter/min shower is luxurious (with breaks between the quarters to lather up)

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

. . . You know you're a live aboard

When you visit friends in their houses you can't resist flushing their toilet several times whilst you wash your hands?
