Part of the BNB and sailing experience is to see what it's like to be a live aboard on the water without the direct access to water and electricity. Life aboard a vessel has a limited supply of water, battery power/ electricity and waste storage capacity. Over the years honoring these live aboard guidelines has helped reduce the utilities and water usage in our homes and has made us more conscious of the luxury of having these amenities at our disposal 24/7.
Please be respectful of the yacht and it’s owners. This is our home on the water. Any acts of disrespect will result in being asked to leave and you will forfeit the remainder of your money.

Please bring a pair of boat shoes / flip flops just for the boat/dinghy. These are to be worn while you are on the boat/dinghy and not taken off the boat and worn into town. This helps us to maintain the fiberglass on the boat.

Everyone must sit while using the bathroom, including men. Nothing goes in the toilet except for toilet paper. This includes tampons, pads, condoms, etc. There are trash bags in each bathroom – Please be careful how much toilet paper you flush – the system is delicate and can only handle small amount of toilet paper. To help keep the system running properly, please use the trash bag for toilet paper used for # 1, and flush any soiled toilet paper. When in doubt, throw it out. Be careful with any hair and place it in the trash bag, not the sink, toilet or shower. No urinating in the shower – this will cause the water system to alarm. We ask that you take a “sailors” shower. A “sailors” shower is, turn on the water and wet yourself down then turn the water off. Wash your hair and body and then turn the water on to rinse. NO daydreaming and lounging with water on. To brush your teeth - Wet your toothbrush, turn the water off, brush your teeth, turn the water on and quick rinse of brush and mouth to rinse.
