Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

Horse Trough Hillbilly Tub! Bathtub!

Ok so the best thing in the world happened to me tonight.
My husband gave me an early Christmas present.
A horse trough.
A tub.
A real live well not live, but plastic bathtub.
Hot water.
I can submerge.
I can get warm in the winter.
I can take a bath whenever I want and not have to rent a hotel room.
Seriously, I now have a bathtub on my boat!
Back in a minute, I gotta go look at it again!
I came home to an excited husband telling me to take of all my clothes.
No, get your mind off of that!
I came home to a full tub.
105 degree water.
Glass of zinfandel on the bathroom counter.
Disneyland (RIP Roy Disney!) lights on.
Christmas music in the background.
And proceeded to spend 45 minutes in sheer liveaboard heaven.

You for sure look like some I know! That's so freaking cool Heather! Now you know that he wasn't looking for *THAT* kind of hot tub the other day!! :)
What a cool present! :) Enjoy!!

Awww that's so sweet. Where will you store it when not in use? Will you flip it over and use it for a coffee table on the promenade deck?

Jim and Heather on Meerkat said...

No, but that is a good idea Jomamma!
And you know how I like to have two uses for everything on the boat. I stood in it when I took a shower this am, so my feet got extra clean!
Promenade deck... promenade deck ~ yikes we don't have one! JIM ~ we need a promenade deck!

So now the boat has a bathtub inside while she sits in a huge tub!

Yes, there's at least 3 different meanings in that statement. Can you find more?

Jim and Heather on Meerkat said...

How many chili beers did you have before you typed that Dave?

Hey now, I'll have you know young lady that I have just as many functioning brain cells left as I have functioning taste buds left.

Like you guys weren't already the hit of the town with the onboard laundry, now it's a bathtub! Are you going to rent it out? Now I'd pay for that (when I was there). Miss you guys! Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

P.S. do you still check your email?

Love yas
