    UncleAlbert, you're the only bloke on the forum who calls his foredeck the 'casing' and I thought there was something dodgy about you, keep blinking in the daylight like that... [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    From what I read in the forums the cruiser life is very similar to forces life. Hardship, friendship and commitment.

    Spot on. I would also add fantastic times too. You are ideally equipped. Best of luck.

    Alright Dave, you've finally managed to drag me kicking and screaming into the liveaboard forum [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
    I must admit I'm surprised at how many ex forces are in here, though thinking about it, there is some sense in that. The forces seems to build a certain level of tolerance and an easy going attitude, whilst turning out people that would bend over backwards to help someone in trouble. Which seems to fit in nicely with the liveaboard way of life [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
    Dreaming of doing it, but wife isn't forces based so don't tell everyone [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Oh we are that [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] I think a lot of the forces humour gets twisted around elsewhere and people bite back at something they view as offensive, where most of us just accept it the way it is intended, and that's just for starters [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
