You might be a liveaboard if you find women with sail drives more alluring than women in high heels.

Fondling women in a crowd is all about the Subtlety. If you get slapped your not subtle enough.

The ship supply here is dangerous....they let me run a tab, give me a "ship wrights discount", search out commercial sources for me and over all have the best prices in town

Try working at one while refitting! I worked at WM and found that I would need a basic widget then buy the top of the line widget because it cost less that the retail price of the basic. Need an AP. got it and bought the cool wireless remote too!

The place up the street does the same for me so what a few supply items between spouses? Still cheaper than a new boat.

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

Your "holiday bird" is a duck or cornish hen (cornish hens only take 45min and and there is alot more /lb than a chicken
This year I stuffed one with hot sausage
total cook time for holiday meal 1hr (bake yams and hen, rest on stove top)

I had no idea that a person could get Cornish hens at Admiral ship Supply...

You working on that bow sprit this winter? :-)

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

You might be a liveaboard if:
you selected your gym based on the quality of its shower facilities.
your suits remain hanging in your car.
you attend meetings with a backpack rather than a briefcase.
your laptop is stuffed with navigation, communications and weather software.
the reason you haven't bought a new laptop in 10 years is that you don't want to spend a week reloading all your navigation, communications and weather software.
your wife only owns 5 pair of shoes.

My boat was designed as a "knock about" in 1936 by William Atkin....a knock about by definition is a sloop with out a bow sprit, never had one never will. Some people think they look good, but would cost me more in a marina, give me "lee helm" and be a hazard in nasty weather.
I never said anything about Admiral, SafeWay is across the street.

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

William Atkin liked bow sprits, the design of my boat was a commission, so was requested not to have a bow sprit...when William Atkin sailed one he was suprisingly pleased at how she behaved with out the bow sprit (the boat is actually better balanced than the original sail plan). I have seen the same lines rigged as a "gaffer" w/bow sprit....it looks cute but the performance sucks. My boat has the original 47' mast (high aspect, jib headed main) much better balanced and potential for cutter rig added.

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

your "holiday bird" is a rotisserie chicken from the deli section, a can of cranberry sauce, and a baguette. Yummmmmmm. Something green would be nice but not really required.

My nav software doesn't like the new versions of Windows. It is possible to get it to work if I have the laptop run as XP...but what's the point

Actually I would have to buy an upgrade to be able to do that, would rather try and figure out how to tweak my software (I know it's possible)
