Question: Are we crazy?
Answer: Absolutely, without question.
Question: How do we do this with kids?
Answer: Our goal is not to spend all of our time on the boat but to experience the different places that we go to. The children and I spend most of our time playing at a park, swimming, going to the library, and doing special activities. Melody recently has made a habit of saying “home sweet home” when we get back to the boat.
Question: How do your home teachers visit you?
Answer: They snorkel to our front door. Actually the Elders Quorum President is having a hard time picking home teachers for us. It is kind of the joke in the ward.
Question: Do you have a shower?
Answer: Yes, we have a solar shower that we use in the cock pit of the boat. On windy days we hang it in our head (bathroom).
Question: Do you have electricity on the boat?
Answer: Yes in the form of batteries. We have a inverter that changes the battery power to a usable electrical outlet. Then when the batteries are drained we lug them to shore and charge them all day long. Usually on Sunday when we are at church.
Question: Where do we plan on going?
Answer: No where until we get an engine. When we have an engine we will do a lot of costal sailing. We could spend our whole lives sailing the coast of this continent and not see everything. Then when we are comfortable we would love to go to the Bahamas, Mexico, and Costa Rica.
