I sit here in the V berth just past midnight fuming to myself that there is hardly any space. Our boat is big, but is it really big enough for 7? Honestly, not comfortably. And this is coming from a woman who is used to small quarters. Sometimes I just get tired of shuffling kids at night, getting stepped on, trampled over, elbowed, and frankly sitting with half a butt cheek off of the V berth cushion just to get enough wall space to lean against because it is the only available space with head room right now.
Sometimes in boat life I have those moments where I wish I just had a closet to myself. I’m not even asking for a whole room. Just some where to go and get away from the cramped, loud, chaos. In a perfect world I would dream of having a whole cabin for my kids to be in that way they are not trashing mine and leaving who knows what behind where I am about to lay my head for the night.
I know I am stressed and my nerves are fried. But, honestly, what do you do when you have nowhere to go?
