Things to Consider About Living on a Sailboat
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live on a sailboat?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live on a sailboat? I sure have. I am going to tell you three things about living on a sailboat.

First, if you want to live on a cat, and you have kids, let them sit up front whenever there are vast waves. Why? Well, because it feels like you're flying. If you close your eyes it feels like you're on a roller coaster.

Secondly, if you're worried about space for you and your kids, there is plenty of space! Your kids won't have to share rooms, so they won't fight as much (and give you a headache)! So, there is plenty of space.

Last of all, education for your kids. They can go all over the world and learn tons of stuff (and they will have fun doing it). Also, your kids will make new friends.

I hope you enjoyed my essay about what I wondered about living on a a sail boat. Now I have to convince my parents to sell our house and get a sailboat- and now your kids will try to convince you! Also, my family took a test sail on a PDQ 42. I liked it because even though it is the same as some cats, it seems so much bigger!
