The Stars

I know most of my recent posts have been about boat repairs...and, well, that is most of what I seem to be doing when I'm not working the day job.  But one of the simple pleasures I have is that I get to sleep under the stars.

You see, that hatch that is over my berth that was dripping on me the other day is also my view of the stars on clear nights.  I can see Orion or other constellations depending on the orientation of the boat and the moon makes it's periodic appearance.  It is one of the little perks of living on a boat.

And as for that dripping, keeping air circulating with the fan seems to cut down on the condensation on cool nights so I haven't had any further problems with that.  Not intuitive to have a fan running when it is cool, but it works.

Looking up at the stars makes a nice way to end the day.


  1. I love sleeping with the breeze coming in the hatch too.

    1. Well, with the temps in the 40's here, I don't tend to do that yet. ;-)
