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

Yes, but the sink is easier to reach and has warmer water.

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

[QUOTE=unbusted67;297948]That is so funny, I literally spent an hour last night with our ducks. They are kind of sweet and kind of creepy.

You might be a liveaboard if you find yourself bleeding from random places at random times of the day.

I'd like to add to this: You can't remember how or when it happened, and think it's normal.

How about when you go into a public place and ask where the head is,
or you inadvertently give landlubbers directions based on port or stbd.

Thank you very much. All of you. Great joy to read this thread, managed* to do 4 last pages and looking forward to another 27. And looking forward to returning aboard (just 2 weeks!).

Got a new one..

You might be a liveaboard if..

You get out your winter boots and you find the laces missing. This tweaks a vague memory but you just can't place it.
Then when sailing a week or so later you find that a pair of your reefing lines look a lot like boot laces.
You settle back in the happy knowledge that the mystery is solved and the reef stays in the main.

Figured I had enough for two loads (plus an extra quarter fort the heavy stuff) and enough for a shower.....do you know that there is a coin from Costa Rica that looks just like a quarter (when you are grabbing fist fulls of change and figuring what you have enough for in the dark)....so did two loads and no shower.
YMBALI: you think of shower time in terms of quarters and when you buy stuff in the store you try and get as many quarters as possible.

Ah I remember the quarter shower days. Glad my current marina doesn't have that (yet), but it was good training for the kids to take quick showers.

If your body hurts in places you forgot exists because you had to replace all battery cables while installing a new inverter because some nut PO had spliced different size cables together. You tried fixing the old head and again aggravated those same body parts that hurt originally because after 4 years of being a dirt dweller you are not used to the positions you have to get into to work on a boat!

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

Drawing inspiration from another thread currently active: you might be a liveaboard if you know precisely how many pairs of shoes your wife has snuck aboard.

Should be:

If you've spent the night in a hammock, in the cockpit, during a gale, because you went snooping in your wife's shoe hiding place........

Or maybe: ...last time you tried to adjust the packing gland, you discovered 15 pairs of women's shoes you'd never seen before.
