A few things you should know before you accept the boating life


Boating life is something a little unique that some people love and some people can't stand.  There are positive attractors and detractors to anything you do to life. Staying on a boat and engaging in the boating life has lots of advantages but one must also consider some of the downsides. Here are a few that I can think of.

1.) No space: Trust me...you won't have much space for anything. It isn't like living in a house or an apartment. Your boat can only take so much to be comfortable. Unless you are buying a large yacht you will need to get rid of most of your possessions.

2.) Small Batch Groceries: Most boats have small refrigerators unless you are going to use the ice chest. That means running to buy ice on a regular basis. You will need to shop every other day to get what you need.

3.) Shared Parking: While it wouldn't seem like a problem just remember that you will need to share parking in either a public or private lot. Don't leave any valuables in your car.

4.) Use Others Boats: Most of the time it is more beneficial to use others boats when you can. Taking yours out takes time.

5.) Expect to Do Chronic Maintenance: Boats require chronic maintenance. You will need to keep updating, cleaning, and fixing your boat as much as you can.
