...if your dog knows the command, "Get in the dinghy" and happily leaps from the stern into it.

Yeah, you might be a cruiser if your definition of "coitus interruptus" is "What happens when the anchor drags." However, you're really a cruiser if that's why you bought a 75# anchor for your 23' boat.

YMBAC if...during thanksgiving time, you are the only one in the grocery store with a tape measure to ensure the turkey is small enough to fit in your oven.

You might be a cruiser if your hair and beard are the same length and colour... GREY..

Re: "You might be a cruiser ....."

YMBAC if...

...you define a good "neighborhood" as one with plenty of room to swing at anchor.

...you buy ice in huge blocks and meat that comes in a can.

...the alarm you set before going to bed is related to your anchor, not your morning commitments.

More of my personal YMBAC here.

Skipper knows "Man the lifeboat" (get in the dink)
and
"Abandon ship" (get off the boat and/or get out of the dinghy)

YMBAC if a couple of years goes by before you realise that your kid has no shoes and no long pants. And no need for them!
