Photos of the Daily Look of a Cruising Boat

My girlfriend and I have just purchased our first 30'er. I have been sailing for years and have taken her sailing on my 16' hobie. This is her first 'big' boat and we are now working towards fixing, replacing, cleaning, adding, to get it ready in the next few years to take off on our first cruise.

What I would really like is some photos of your everyday boat so she can see how cluttered, clean, orderly some real boats of everyday life onboard are like.
And just how much "oh look at all this storage" can be shall we say...misleading at times

Thanks!

Here's my 28 footer on a typical day. Yes, I'm a pig. She's a work in progress as am I. The galley pic was taken on a good day

This is about 30 min later

The boat feels bigger when everything is stowed!

Welcome aboard!

Re: Photos of the Daily Look of a Cruising Boat

It is SO refreshing to see boats as they are used rather than posed for a photo shoot. Please post more pics, trying to sell the wife on cruising when we can. Thanks!

Re: Photos of the Daily Look of a Cruising Boat

How does one post a photo in a thread? I do not see that option. Rules indicate I can post attachments but I cannot find how that is done. Only option I find is to insert a URL for an image or link.

Well I don't feel so bad now. Here is a before photo when I'm in my bachelor cruise mode working on the boat sans girlfriend and/or guests:

I'm still working on an after photo.

Never mind. Now the Advanced is working and it is obvious how to attach a thumbnail. Earlier today I got an error message when clicking on Advanced.
