Are you really constantly repairing your boat when you cruise? That's a big question for those thinking about the life, especially as so many people make jokes about "cruising is just fixing your boat in exotic places."
To answer that question, Carolyn Shearlock listed every single repair -- large and small -- that they did while on a 4-month cruise through the Bahamas. Only one actually delayed them; another one could have caused more problems than it did. But most of them? Easily fixed or worked around.
