Pirates Life = Boat Life
When you tell someone you live on a boat, they always think you have a parrot on your shoulder and look like a pirate! Funny part is, I have a pet parrot that does live on my shoulder (but I have had her for 6 years before I moved aboard). Still have all my limbs and I don’t pillage with a sword ;)
It’s funny how people instantly assume this is what you must look like if you choose to live aboard. In reality, liveaboards are normal people who simply discovered how great it is to live on a boat instead of a house!
