...if you think nothing of helping a neighbor on an all day project.

...if you have the following tool boxes: crapers/clamps, engine, general, electric, tape, plumbing, aux. electric, stainless steel screws, fishing, brass screws, misc. sailboat hardware, straps, ratchets, drillbits, and sealants/caulk.

..if your wastebasket in the head is full of toiletpaper.

..you've ever fried your shorepower cable by turning on the coffee maker.

..you only have room for one plate on the cockpit table.

I love the jenga in your fridge one best.

you know you've been a liveaboard too long when you walk up to a land-friend's house and, instead of ringing the doorbell, shout, "Ahoy 221 Baker Street!"

you know you are a live aboard when you consider a freezer the ultimate luxury....that you don't have (one the size of a loaf of bread with no door of it's own doesn't count)

your "living room" serves double duty as "bed room" actually everything in your household serves at least double or triple duty.

when you want to get to something you have to plan ahead to make space to put stuff so you can make room for the stuff on top of the stuff on top of what you are getting

you will never have the problem of walking in to the next room and by the time you get there forgetting what it was you walked all that way for..instead if something is not *exactly* where it should be you don't have a clue where it is....until you find it 6" away

you might be a live aboard if just as you got ready to bitch and complain about how your December power bill was $50....your co-worker bragged he had got his (land based) down to $200

Corelle is my china!

Oh yes, and the plastic wine glasses with removable stems for easy storage.

I like the "all your pots have removable handles" one!

You might be a liveaboard if...
...twice a year you find yourself fixing your toilet.
...when getting together with other liveaboards the discussion always leads to the head/holding tank
... your deck is covered with junk that didn't fit down below.

[[ in my recent galley refit all the pots hang behind the companionway steps against the engine compartment, all of the hand painted Portuguese plates and thick heavy Mexican glasses have their own padded holders]]

if when/if you ever get a refrigerator, you don't need to hire two burly men and a pick-up truck (with a lift gate) to get it home...just ask one of your land lubber friends with a car to give you a ride and you can put it in the back (if it is a station wagon, SUV etc)or on the back seat beside you...and you can carry it out of the store all by yourself (even the 3.2cf 110AC fridge/freeze I was looking at was only 60lbs).

When trying to register a new bank account or anything to do with Government, their computer won't except the fact that you don't have a residental address. (A PO box wont do)
So you have to make one up.

Which means they can't find you

a private mail service like "Mail Boxes" is considered a "real" address

if you don't have a mail service the marina here gives live aboards anaddress (all be it fictitious) to use. The one I gave for my cell company is the address for the hazardous waste disposal facility in the boat yard here

when your cell phone company no longer honors the free replacement, a lanyard attachment point is a feature you look for on a new cell, you have a collection of used cell phones you bought on e-bay so you allways have a replacement phone ready..

and a surprising number of you belongings have lanyards
