The challenge: accommodation

I am gratified to tell you that the recent post telling how I got onto the path that led to living aboard Eolian has been one of the most popular posts on this blog.   Thanks Erick, for suggesting it!  (Sorry it took me so long to tackle the subject.)

I have wanted this blog to bring the experience of living aboard to those who are not, but are considering it, or want to consider it, or those who are just curious about the experience.  When folks find out that we live on a boat, there are some common questions that you hear:
I have tried to answer these and other questions (some that have been asked, and some that I anticipate) like a fresh experience would do.  I must confess, tho, that after living aboard for nearly 13 years, the infinite adaptability of the human has made this somewhat of a challenge.  We are such adaptable creatures that we can accommodate nearly any living situation, causing the novelty to fade into the background of routine.  But nobody wants to hear about the routine, because it is, umm.. routine.  (They do call it "news", after all.  A show called the "olds" would not get nearly the viewership.)

So a little help, please.  Is there something you are curious about that I have failed to address? I need your eyes, and your curiosity...

It's your turn.

How about a "must have" list of boat features you find you need after living aboard for a while. Or maybe a "wish list" of what you would look for differently if you needed to buy a new boat?

Great Erick! Thanks again for your ideas. I hope it doesn't take me so long to write them up this time...
