Could Living on a Boat Be the Survival Lifestyle for You?

If you’ve considered living on a boat but have a few misgivings and questions, check out Home is Where the Boat Is, by Emy Thomas.

You don’t have to be a wealthy yacht owner taking world cruises to live on a boat. Those who make the break from traditional housing often experience pleasant surprises. For instance, there’s a sense of community and a different mentality among those on the water.

Thomas gives her account of sailing the Pacific and Caribbean for 13 years with the man she loved. It’s not a how-to book or boating encyclopedia, but an easy read about their lifestyle on a low budget. She simply tells what it was like.

She brings to light practical matters, such as handling laundry and garbage, getting food and water, making it through sickness and storms, making a living, and encounters with people along the way.

Discover what’s possible when it comes to escaping the rat race. Click on the book’s title–Home is Where the Boat Is–where you see it linked in this post. That takes you to the page where it’s featured, and you can place your order there.
