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

you could be a liveaboard if you pay good money to store STUFF....you could be a cruiser if you leave behind a dumpster full of that same stuff as you sail out of port.....

ycbac if you consistently leave your shoes in your boat when you go to shore...or cannot even find them...

can someone throw in a dink whatever is boat related in such a dumpster and trail it into the Back Sea? You could find some virgin yachting ground and make a small fortune

ycbac if you unfold a small table and display such things for sale in a marina?

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

"You might be a cruiser if you gauge the success of your parties by how many dinghies are tied to your stern". The amount is larger if it is a catamaran and the owner is a good cook.
