“Quality time” with YOU, maybe, but what would they say if you asked them to live there with you?
I see from the Utube boating couples what kind of boats gravitate to them.
And i’ve lived long enough to know that "Women control HALF the money, and ALL of the you know what…"
So, it’s plain to me from where the wind is blowing with these >35 foot boats these couples are driving, and ordinary couples are selling on yachtworld.
Also, they are just nomading around - having fun, coastal cruising, and stopping in marinas a lot.
Seasteading seems more about spending more time offshore, outside EEZs, than doing what any desirable chic I know would consider quality time.
We were just subconsciously programmed by our 1st world upbringing to consider a certain amount of living space a comfortable minimum. With boats and modern women, 35 feet seems to be that, even for coastal cruising.
Women are the glue of society, and make any frontier steading bearable. If they ain’t comfortable, we’ll know about it, and won’t be comfortable either until they are!
That’s the way of the apes.
For me, it ain’t about pleasure cruising. It’s about ideology and making money.
So, with the right-size machine for the job, I’ll deal…
I’ve never had an ocean boat, but I was in a sailing club as a small child for a while and putted around on a sailing dingy on a lake.
Ain’t nearly the same, but I understand the basic dynamics and physics of it. The rest just seems like living in an RV that might be buried in an avalanche if you’re careless.
I don’t get sick coastal cruising, but never been on an offshore boat in a storm.
