This cruising life sounds wonderful doesn’t it? What we possibly gloss over is things like boatyard work. It’s really hot awful work. Nothing works on a boat when it’s out of the water. No toilets means climbing down a ladder in the middle of the night and running across the yard. No anchorage means no wind blowing thru the windows to cool things down. We’ve learnt a few things after having done it a few times now. Rule number one; Get an AirBnB with Air Conditioning. Rule number two: Get it done as fast as possible.
