Here in a Australia, a boatie is someone who is a boating enthusiast, either travelling along the coastline in their own craft or simply messing around on it in their leisure time. In some cases, people live permanently on their boats, sailing between some of Australia's most beautiful coastal areas such as the Great Barrier Reef, the Gold Coast and the Hawkesbury River.

Would you like to experience this lifestyle? Do you think that being a boatie would be enjoyable? .

Nah, it's a bit too outdoorsey for me.
I think I would enjoy it if I was a better swimmer.

No. Alas I get seasick just looking at a boat moving up & down! I'm sure it would be fun, but my stomach just would not tolerate it.
No. Not really. I like the stability of having my home in one place 24 hours a day. That whimsical lifestyle doesn't suit me. I'm not the adventurous type. I love going on cruises, so I don't mind being on the water, but I like to come home as well. I also like to have room to spread out and a comfortable abode. I don't think a boat would be that comfortable. Cramped and tiny are words that come to mind. For a single person it might be ok,but to have a family sqashed in a boat it would be hellish. Living on top of each other with no privacy. No thanks. 5 star luxury with best of everything on a cruise is the only way to sail the seas and then to return home again to our permanent abode.
I love swimming at the beach. I love travelling on a boat/ship on still water. I love going fishing in a 'tinny'.

I've travelled on both sightseeing boats, & commuting boats on the GBR, especially going to/fro Hayman Island, many times, along the Whitsunday Passage.

But be a 'boatie'? Nope, doesn't interest me one jot. I like 'terra firma' way too much, & the less 'terror', & the more 'firmer', the better!

This is one reason I've never been on an ocean-going cruise ship. It just doesn't interest me.

I love flying to my destination(s), & spending the time there. This I've done all my life, & I ain't gonna break that habit now! Way too old to do that!
No I wouldn't like to be a boa tie in Australia. But I would love to live on a canl boat in the UK. I imagine freezing cold winter day, books (and TV), warm meals snuggled up in a chair, or bed. Looking out at that freezing cold day. Of course I am a bit worried about how I keep that boat warm……………have to look into that further.
No, I have no interest in these things.
No, I have no interest in these things.
No, I wouldn't like too, because I'd always be worrying about the boat breaking down, or turning over in rough weather. but my husband would love to be a boatie! So far, he's only owned 2 tinny's, & has recently sold 1 of them. He never uses the boat/s!
