or Working from the Salon
Don works remotely as a computer programmer for an energy company up north. We had to have internet access in order for him to do this, so that narrowed down our choices of marinas. But it allowed him to keep his seniority and benefits, and trips back up to the office gave him a chance to visit with family. His company covers the cost of the ISP, and we couldn’t get the technicians to stop shaking their heads when they realized they were installing a corporate line on a boat. So many people are amazed with our dream life.

Nav StationOur vessel is normally designed to have an aft cabin, but ours was custom designed with a larger navigation station and an enclosed equipment locker instead. There is a swing out seat, and although it is a great design for mounting electronics and charting a course, Don finds the main salon much more comfortable to work in. Casual day is every day. Lunch is often taken on deck with fishing pole in hand. It’s a tough job but he manages to suffer through it.
