What does it mean to live aboard a sailboat? Most people just don’t know what to say when I tell them where I live (as a matter of fact I don’t bring it up much in conversation). When some people find out they say I’m weird or strange or crazy (and not in that fun, friendly way where everyone laughs after). It’s certainly not for everyone and I would venture to say it’s not for most people. However, for those of us who dream of doing it there’s no other way to live.
