A first-person account of onboard life with photos and how-to information.
Thinking of taking up full-time residence on a boat? Dave Kelley, the former Executive Editor of Boating World magazine, offers an instructive and enjoyable first-person account of onboard life, complete with photos. Aided by his wife, who provides a woman’s perspective, and by his dogs and cat (who “address” a pet’s concerns), Kelley discusses all the important considerations involved in opting for a home port. Find out how to choose the right boat, set up an office, adjust to the limited space, establish a routine, and prepare float plans. Prepare yourself for the costs and special challenges involved in marina life. Interviews with those who have lived at sea reveal why some have returned to land-and why others will never become landlubbers again.
