Getting From the Boat to the Car in Winter

One of the questions we are often asked when people find out we live on a sailboat is: "How do you get to your car, especially in the winter?"

The truth is, just like everyone else does: walking.

When living aboard in a marina, the morning commute is not that complicated nor mysterious. You simply leave your boat, walk down the pier, and head to your car. I know this is kind of anticlimactic, there is no little dinghy ferrying us to shore or any need to swim; we don't even need to fight off sea monsters!

Living aboard grants you many freedoms and doesn't cause as much inconvenience as most people would have themselves believe.
