Nothing about living aboard is as hard as I'd imagined it would be.
The boat needs more maintenance than I'd thought it would.
We need a lot more dinghy than we've got in order to actually go anywhere.
We went outside the inlet last Sunday and it was the most exciting ride I've ever had in a boat. Large standing and breaking waves in all different directions. Looking up at the bow one moment and then ducking from the spray it makes coming back down the next.
