In 1979 the Neales left their law and education careers and traded their home in a suburban neighborhood for a three-room boat. Now, their neighborhood is a Chesapeake Bay cove, or a secluded Bahamian beach, or anywhere else they choose to anchor. And along the way they raised two daughters. All in the Same Boat is one family's testament to the belief that you can lead your own life, whatever that might be. For the Neales, it hasn't been a vacation. Instead of mowing the lawn, they fix the watermaker or make bread from scratch; instead of trying to find good schools for the kids, they make their own good school; instead of living to work, they work to live, making time for adventure and play. Here is how they do it, and how you can do it too, with hard-won tips, practical suggestions, and life lessons on everything from developing a cruising frame of mind to choosing and customizing the right boat to dealing calmly with the myriad problems, big and small, that will ship with you on your journey.
