  1. That's hysterical! Sadly, I think I've had some of those same Google searches.

    1. Lol. The really sad thing is - we still don't have the answers!

  2. Lol! I might need to give Matt a heads up. Maybe take out some life insurance on him...

    1. I've just realized why he's so reluctant to get in the water with me!

  3. Lol! Who needs Freud when you have Google search? The mind processes of a couple of full time cruisers are perfectly clear (and universally shared by said group :).

  4. Lol. Such a fun blog post. Now I wish I wasn't so obbessive about clearing my search history.

    1. I think it gets depressing, realizing I keep searching for the same things!

  5. Very funny! And, it is hard to find answers, especially to "Why is my saildrive oil milky looking?" Well, there is an answer to that one (water leaking in), but how to prevent it or what to do when it happens is harder. We got hauled out many times for this problem, only to never have it be fixed and after a while, and thousands of dollars, we learned to live with it.

    1. Yes, the real problem is the lack of answers and sometimes the lack
      of progress with boat projects that you keep "completing" over and over. Sometimes it is better just to accept that fixes aren't happening!

    2. It is one of the three main reasons that we got off our boat after eight years, because Mark was sick of fixing the same things over and over again!

    3. 8 years seems like a long time to be fixing the same things... while it seems like a vacation to non-cruisers, it's actually quite a challenging lifestyle to maintain long term.

    4. You got that right! Especially when working and running a business. :-)
