Life in a Locker
Cruisers often refer to it as boat yoga, and it’s a very real thing. While land dwellers may have to complete an equal number of repairs to keep their home looking good and functioning properly, in most cases, the access to a house’s wires, plumbing, and structural pieces is infinitely better. Crawling into, and hanging upside down inside lockers and engine rooms, is not for those lacking in mobility, or those suffering from claustrophobia. I must also surmise that those who are of smaller stature might have an easier time of it. That said, I know some fairly large boaters and repair technicians who seem to make out OK.
Headlamps come in handy!
I spent a good chunk of last week inside this locker, and its starboard side counterpart.
You have to look very closely to even see that, along with our friend Ken, I’m in this photo.
While not completely inside this locker, we both had our heads stuck inside it for a time.
