 Making Your Boat a Home

"Liveaboard sailboats are easy to spot. They're the ones in the anchorage with wind generators and solar panels strategically placed around the boat, laundry fastened in the rigging, jerry cans lashed to the lifelines, and as assortment of accouterments from sailboards to bicycles strewn about the decks.  Families are even easier to spot as their children dash about the anchorage exhibiting a paradoxical air of self-reliance and maturity, coupled with sheer deviltry. Just like a house, each liveaboard boat possesses a unique flavor, one that reflects the person, couple, or family that lives on it. While charter boats are characterized by a certain uniformity, and weekend and vacation cruisers exhibit a neatness that suggests temporary residency, liveaboard sailboats have personality."
