Are You Flexible?

I don't know about you but crawling around working on my boat can be tough as I'm not in great shape anymore.

Now flash to the admiral. She's been doing yoga for about a year and she runs circles around me.

So last night after plying me with a few glasses of wine, I agreed to try a beginners class in yoga.

Will I survive this?

Better option, since she's in better shape than you and since we both know that yoga is not a manly thing and since she loves the boating life then.......

I've always said there should be a class called "trawler yoga". This old frame has been beaten and twisted so often that getting into the tough spots in the boat is getting more and more traumatic. My Admiral is also in Yoga, and I have practiced it in my youth. Maybe I'll join you, but I do have an ego and for sure I'll look like a 2 X 4 trying to put its ends together.

Supposedly I will use a chair...

I tried some private lessons a few years ago but I remained distracted by the instructors tramp stamp

A chair!? Huh. All that would be is something else for me to fall off of. I may as well start on the floor cuz that's surely where I'll end up.

Unlikely, must be another photoshop.

I can barely fit my feet between my twins. You basically have to hang from above or find a very small mechanic.

Hmmm...yeah. Maybe I'd better lay off the 4 bean and bacon burrito the day before class. And BB....I don't think the hot-house thing is gonna help dispel any accessorial gaseous expulsions.

Another couple of nights doing yoga and you will be able to transfer your post about how to get rid of chafing over here.

You have to be careful what you agree to when you're liquored up. Mine always agrees to selling the house and bigger boat when on the rum but forgets the next day.
Being small and flexible is the reason the teak work on those Tiawan trawlers looks so good.

We've actually been considering moving onboard our boat, opening an office we can work out of and start looking for a bigger boat.

Wouldn't that be like a shoemaker that is barefoot? You know - you being a real estate professional.

We are headed towards retirement as soon as the kids can run the business.

For years I have been telling single women to take up boating, and single men to take up yoga. Never thought that yoga could help with the boat work.
