Sit right back and you’ll hear a tale…

So my friend and co-worker Dalon (he’s South-African; I guess that passes for a name over there) recently bought a 51-foot sailboat that he is now living on, and not only that he convinced his girlfriend to move on-board as well while only having about two linear feet of closet space and a toilet that is not currently operational.  I’m not sure if I am more impressed with his sense of adventure or his power of persuasion with the fairer sex.  Who else could talk a woman into that?

Here are some pics:




He plans to start sailing the world in a few years or as soon as the economy collapses, whichever comes first.  If it turns to armageddon, I may go with him.

Oh!  And his dog lives on board as well!


And this is me boating while intoxicated:
