It is an amazing boat but just want to make her our boat. And have been reading on here off and on now for a couple of months. So please get ready to have a barge of assorted questions. And please be patient with me. lol...
When my wife bought the Eagle we were newbie’s want bees and we had a ton of questions. I was not a very happy camper at the time! The things we wish we know before buying
and becoming a live aboard was:
What to do with our worldly junk/stuff, especially the sentimental and remembrances? We gave what we could to family
friends and charity, there was still at last two dozen trips to the dump. Its amazing what we collect over time. Do I really need 3 of these?
How little 30 amps 120 volts AC is. We had to set the break dozens of times each day. When we lived in the house we never threw a breaker? Whats 30 amps and where can I buy more amps?
How little two hundred gallons of water
is and 12 gallons a hot water. I just fill the tank yesterday? It seems the water and/or the hot water usually ran out in the middle of a shower
How little room there was for shoes, cloths, shoes, person items and did I mention shoes? Had to par down to two small closets. We where forced to wear the same thing more than once. How embarrassing! We have to buy another boat just for our stuff!
What you can not put down a marine
toilet? How come the toilet is plugged again. I only used two hand full of Charmin toilet pape? We are limited to only things that have been eaten, so the toilet can not be used as a garbage disposal?
How small the holding tank
is. What is the smell and brown stuff running down the hull
? What do you mean the holding tank
has to be pump out? So who does that? We do? You must be joking?
is to small as there is no room for our drinks, and NO ice? Ok so we don’t have to eat! Remember, in college we lived on beer
, pop corn and chips, We can do that again!
I don’t feel to well! How can both of us catch the flu at the same time, and how do we make the bloody boat stop rocking/moving. Gawds, I hope the toilet is not plugged again!
The boat makes these weird sounds. The toilet sounds like a garbage disposal, motors come on/off, we can heard water, the fenders and lines make creaky sounds. How does a person sleep with all this noise
? What do you mean its relaxing?
So where did every body go, its only 6 o clock. What do you mean there are only two of us living in the marina and its an older couple three docks down. Well who are we going to party with?
Our address is West Marina, Dock
2, slip 3, Fairview. Seattle
WA. What do you mean that is not a good address and our drivers license
can not be renewed or have food
delivered. Will you accpet our GPS
You have to develope a sense of humor and take things in stride.
