I Live on a Boat!

I live on a boat!

Fuji and I are back aboard Annie, a "Pet-friendly" Westsail 32.

There are still many jobs to do, (see the punch-list), but she is livable now.

The Carry-On A/C is struggling to keep the Main Salon cool and I plan on addressing that immediately. Fuji and I are both a little warm and it's only May... summer can be brutal w/o A/C in South Florida. I have a friend, (Eric), loan me an additional Carry-On A/C but when I tried it today is was seized up. We will be considering other possibilities.

I've lost the V-Berth. Though I bought him a bed of his own, the first thing he did on his first night on the boat was grab his toys and take them to my side of the berth which has a mattress that is 4.5 inches of high density foam and 1.5 inches of cool memory foam. (Honestly, I'm happy to let him have it... for such a large V-Berth, it sits very high and is a little tight - I sleep in the Main Salon).

Pressure water and refrigeration are some of the first things on the list of live-aboard projects.

Here are some pics from the last couple of days... forgive me, the boat is a little messy in some of them.

Fair seas and God bless!

As long as he has his Red Bird, he's happy...

...and food... and Fuji Snacks...

... and grass to water...

...and a big back yard to explore

...and a nice view...

...and a six inch memory foam mattress.


  1. Looks very comfortable. Congratulations on your home-coming. :)

    1. Thanks Dan... it is comfortable. How's the move going?

    2. in VA now but finding a place for the boat not so easy. 3 RV/boat storage places don't allow any work and have waiting lists. A DIY marina I found has plenty of space but costly.

      Wife doesn't seem fond of the boat but suggested I leave the boat in TN which I may do and put the cost difference into the boat fund to work on later. Decided to rent out the house in TN and may put anything received on that into the boat fund as well. Might work out, but only time will tell.

      Start work again on Monday. :-(

  2. Looks like a beautiful and open surroundings for you both to play in. Just keep Fuji safe from jumping in the kiddy pool! lol Nothing like Home Sweet Home. Congratulations.

    1. Thanks Laura. It is beautiful and Fuji hasn't jumped in so far but he does keep eyeing the Pelicans...lol.

      Hope all is well in California.
