Don't you get bored, just sitting around on a sailboat everyday???

touch ups
 It's those that have never had the opportunity to enjoy life aboard, that often ask that question.

Those that have never dinghy'd 2 miles thru the waves , so they can tie up, hike another 1/2 mile to the grocery store, lug it all back to the dinghy, dinghy back 2 miles, carry it up a six ft ladder, across the deck, down  a 5 step ladder and wash, bag and stow it all.  It's a whole day, well spent if you don't want to starve.

Laundry day is a similar routine, that gives you the pleasure of spending hours in a sweltering Laundromat that charges $7.00 in a slow washer and close to that for a drier.  Boating..... I love it!

Here's a pictorial sneak peak into life aboard a cruisers sailboat.


swimming with the fishies


swinging from the yard arm

hoping to catch a lobster dinner


keeping our selves and friends out of hot water

walking the beach


watching harbour TV

enjoying the stars

welcoming family aboard
munching on the beach

watching the neighbours anchor and tie up the sails


getting places

rainbows almost everyday


beach bumming

getting coral out of places it should never be


heading to the next bay

scrubbing off at the end of the day

 


snorkelling the indians

squeezing to tiny Hot places

swimming off the boat
dancing up a storm

dinner out with friends


the painkiller blues

enjoying the scenery


getting in on some pirate action

getting off the boat


trash removal

driving lessons?


hanging overboard

happy hour at the dinghy dock pub


heading snorkelling

up the channel


hiking to high, old crumbly places

installing luxuries ( TV )
lining up the painkillers
water run- need that watermaker
meeting interesting characters




$200 in groceries by dinghy


avoiding the pretty coral


being amazed and entertained

beach bonfires with friends


bumper boats at the dinghy dock

checking out the neighbours


chillin on the bow





BORED?    No Never!
