Not all our cruising is on the coast of Maine. Sometimes we take off for several days and explore parts unknown. For the next 8 days, we will go north to Nova Scotia, so come aboard for a sense of what it’s like to live on a boat.
Here we are in the main cabin or pilot house. This is where everything from morning coffee to plotting courses to napping takes place.
With the help of very sophisticated navigation and radar equipment, the captain (hubby) does all of the hard work required to keep us safely on course. Sometimes, like when it’s so foggy you can’t see a thing, that can be a challenge.
Below is the galley, a very efficient space complete with cooktop, microwave/convection oven, refrigerator/freezer and ample storage space. One thing you learn by spending time in close quarters is how to work efficiently. Once you get the hang of it, you wonder why we all require so much space.
There is a dining table in this area, too, but since we prefer eating in the main cabin, it serves as a computer table where I can work on photos and do a little catch up when there is WiFi available. This space also converts into a second berth that sleeps 2 adults.
All the way forward is our cabin. It has a very comfortable queen size bed, but I have to tell you putting sheets on it is not easy because there’s very little space on either side. If you are a boater and have a trick, do let me know!
So, there you have it, home on a boat. Glad you came aboard.
I better run to do my jobs: pumping gas, bringing in the fenders, tieing the lines. Yep, I get to do all the fun stuff, but I’m not complaining because the adventure is worth it. Can’t wait to see what happens next!
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
