... when you visit a friends house and worry that everything on the shelves will break when they cast off

.... when you visit a friend and try to stow the dishes securely

We love the amp-hungry reptiles, the list of tool boxes - and the desire to flog people who don't frap their halyards.

You might be a liveaboard if...

The Ghost Fleet of the Recession - Singapore

You know you are a liveaboard, if the admirable catches you checking mast,rigging and sail prices...for a 400'er!

if you might be a live aboard (compared to a weekender) if you don't sleep in a sleeping bag and have figured out a way to make rectangular sheets work on a bed that is anything but rectangular,

...You view empty six-packs as a great storage solution for your condiments!

...You loathe cleaning the shower pump strainer, but do enjoy "cleaning" the bathroom while you shower!

...taking a weekend vacation to a far-off location involves shutting off your freshwater pump, shower pump, radio, and all other non-essentials on your boat!

...Thursday isn't "trash day", its "pump-out day"!

A few more....YMBALI-

Your first iPhone app was the Weather Channel. Your second was Tides app!

You actually pay attention to all the "other" severe weather alerts, like high wind advisories...(like tonight!)

You are obsessed with the humidity...indoors!

You take the dingy over to the fuel pier to fill the 2.5 gal tank because it is convenient.

...getting the "heat" question for the 1,000th time drives you mad!

Now that it is winter and only "crazies" go out, you can plan to visit all those cool places that were too crowded during the summer!

Just love this one - I always say, we must have the cleanest bathroom around, it gets a spray down every day!

... sleeping in a bedroom makes you feel claustrophobic because there isn't a hatch overhead to look at the stars.
