How many people aboard most of the time?

Wifey B: Talking about RV's made me want to ask this because it seems most of them really are set up for two people or two adults and two kids at most.

So, how many people you cruise with becomes my question.

You can select up to 3 answers on the list as you select by various numbers whether that's the number the majority of the time or fairly often or just occasionally.

We're talking when cruising too, not when sitting at the dock.

I was curious and it very much figures into boat choice and lifestyle and appears more of an issue on RV's. I think one or two aboard predominates here but maybe I'll be surprised and learn something.

Dogs aren't a problem on most cruising boats. They are "Children" and considered an integral part of the crew. You'll get some heat for that statement , for sure. I'm an animal guy and absolutely relate. Wifey B you may have stepped on a hornets nest...

We live by the adage, 6 for cocktails, 4 for dinner and 2 to sleep!
The only time we have varied from this is when returning from Bermuda after double hand class racing, our insurance requires a third person for the trip home.
Two times we had a third person one time we took a couple.
Our boat was too crowded for me...
Besides, my wife and I get along pretty well, no need to complicate things!

I certainly like most dogs better than most people but when we cruise it's 2, 3 or 4 people not sure that helps. Often have the kid with us to do the heavy lifting.

Oh and I was intimidated into starting a dog and cat poll.

Usually just the two of us. Until the Christmas boat parade, then it's usually 20-22 of us.
