Living Aboard Link

Perhaps I have spent way too much in my cubicle (working), but I found the following site an incredible read.

Here are two stories that I really like:

I just finished reading "Graveyard of the Atlantic", a 50 year old book from the local library. Today's marine electronics are a great help...most of the time.

Re: Living Aboard Link

Before reading Parks' articles, I thought that the living aboard lifestyle would consist of an early morning margarita followed by an afternoon nap, a cool dip in a deserted Bahamian bay around sunset, concluded with some in-boat loving after dinner. However, after reading Parks' articles, I now realize that the living aboard lifestyle is actually quite challenging. It is still an incredibly interesting lifestyle, but not in that rum soaked island life way.
