"Another unpublicized truth about the cruising life is the huge amount of work and attention a boat requires. Every cruising sailor is, in a sense, a slave to his vessel. Even if you start out with a brand new boat and equipment, the list of maintenance and repair chores is literally never-ending. If the boat is old, the list is even longer. The fact is, I don't know any cruiser who can honestly say, "I have absolutely nothing that I could be doing for the boat today!""
