We haven’t been live aboards for that long, but we’ve got enough time under our belt to have discovered some profound differences between life on land and life on a boat. Check back frequently as we will be expanding on this list as we go along!
You know you’re a live aboard when….
You have to use a flashlight to see inside of your oven.
Every item in your life does double duty.
You’re suddenly the first to jump at the chance to house sit.
You replace Facebook with AccuWeather as your most time consuming app.
You store all of your #1s and #2s under your bed (because that’s where the holding tank is!)
A long hot shower (that doesn’t require the deposit of multiple quarters) is considered a luxury.
You consider the number of errands you do based on how many cart-loads it will require you to bring to the boat.
You grocery shop multiple times a week (because the fridge will only hold so much).
You get excited at the prospect of ice in your drink.
