People have some strange misconceptions about what you mean when you say that you live on a boat. They seem to either think that you live on baked beans in a floating cave, devoid of light and comfort, or they imagine a miniature cruise liner, with lights ablaze and lobster and chilled champagne on tap.

The truth is a distant somewhere between the two, of course, that depends on the boater. We think we live very well indeed, but we’re both used to living in remote and service free areas. Others would draw the line at our lack of amenities: aircon, washing machine, etc—but we’re happy.
