Boats That Talk




Me Voy always tells us what to do. We went thru a phase recently where we were dreaming of buying this little property, with a pier, and taking Me Voy there. She totally disapproved and we abandoned the idea. I was nervous therefore to tell her about Lucy Maru, our new live aboard. How would Me Voy take the news?
Well, it was as if she already knew, and confirmed our decision by allowing us to find more rot.
One may think to take something like that as a sign that she was really pissed off, but I don't think that's the case. I think it was more like, "Hey guys, you were right. I won't be ready to live on for some time. See these ribs, yup they're rotten too. So get yourselves settled and dig in, there's a lot more work left."

better to find the rot now than once she's in the water.

I love this. Boats definitely talk to us. Puff always seems to say, "Let's go!"

My little boat talks to me too. Mostly pep talk. 'Fix me, girl! You can do it! I want to sail again!', she says enthusiastically! :D

Sorry about the rot, but glad you guys have a setup that lets you just keep rolling and fixing up Me Voy. What a neat place to live while doing so!

You guys are a real inspiration to me, especially your attitude. You remind me that the light at the end of the tunnel is sometimes a light and not a train. :D
