''The only things I miss is the lack of space. Oh and even more importantly a flushing toilet!''
''surely you can still do those things from your boat its just a house on water as opposed to a house on a street.....isn't it?! ''
''Thanks for this. For many of us who don't have many of these things anyway the list might look more like this (less green, sorry). Mostly energy-related things. 1. Nearly unlimited electricity on demand. 2. Nearly unlimited water on demand. 3. Space - being able to wander from room to room. 4. Quick and easy access to the corner shop (depending on location of boat - but many moorings / waterways are some way from the nearest shops). 5. Being able to "tidy up later" if you don't want to live in a sty. 6. Nearly unlimited heating on demand. 7. TV. 8. umm, can't think of anything else...Oh yeh. Biking is actually even more feasible on a boat, so I don't quite get the missing biking thing.''
''Umm, the sea and Brighton, perhaps, but that's just a matter of geography. I couldn't get to the sea or Brighton that easily from my birth town of Swindon either... I've been living on a boat for ten years, and am happy to confirm that all of the others are possible. Though perhaps this is from a continuous cruising perspective? I can see how that would change matters :-) ''
''But thank you for posting this, it reminded me to get round to hooking up with my local Organic Veg Club, saw the poster weeks ago and forgot to act :-)''
