Land just doesn't move right

I have been renting a house all summer while I refit the interior of my boat, but sleep aboard on the week ends (I can get away with 3 nights a week with out having to pay live aboard fees)...I sleep so much better, land just doesn't move right.

You are the only one at work who doesn't want to win the big screen TV at the charity raffle.

or a big screen TV consists of a 16" wide screen laptop
a *huge* screen TV would be a 20" wide screen LCD which has to be mounted on tracks or hinges.

You might be a live aboard if when visiting ashore you catch yourself pumping the on lever on a faucet (you don't know how many landlubbers have pushed down the handle on my bronze water pump and waited for more water to come out) .

You know you are a liveaboard when you consider a Coot your pet.

You are a liveaboard if you live aboard. If you move, you become a cruiser. If you move more, you are dragging.

You might be a liveaboard if a knotmeter is just one more thing to
take out and glass the hole

And for the true live-aboard married couples - you know you are a live-aboard when your wife cannot fathom what land-wives are talking about when they say that they cannot stand having their husbands "underfoot" all day.

Was thinking the same thing right before I went to sleep in my hammock, yes I sleep in a canvas hammock.

I sleep in the on-deck hammock on especially hot nights and especially in anchorage with French charter boats around that have a deckfull of young buxom babes wearing nothing but a smile and long hair. That's living the dream or dreaming the life, or just plain happy dreams. It's a tough life out here, but somebody has to do it.

If everytime you consider buying something the main consideration is what you'll have to get rid of to make room for it.

the hammock I have is a "regular sleeper" sort of like soft canvas, bed part is 95" long, 65" wide....whole thing takes up more than 12', I have to hook one end at my companionway, the other forward of the deck hatch in the forward cabin.....too close to my wood stove for use this winter. In cold weather I put a comforter in it and wrap it around me.....though my main bunk is big enough for two...just have to find someone to keep me warm for the winter.
