Other things to note
Hello and welcome aboard The Whisper.
There is a couple of things to go over about staying on a boat. It's awesome living on a boat but it does have some slight differences. There are 2 tides that come in a 24 hour period. So 2 high tides and 2 low tides. What this means is that the water the boat is on will comes and goes. So during low tide the boat will sit on the bottom. There is 2 electrical systems on the boat. A 12 volt system( run off a battery like your car) and a 110volt(like your home). The round lights overhead are on the 12 volt system so please be sure to turn them off when not in use. All the plugs and light switches are on a 110 and you can leave on. The boat has a water tank filled with potable water and you are more then welcome to drink it, clean with it and shower with it.(if the water starts to sputter it means the tank is low and just call me and I will fill up. ) The bathroom has a stand up shower and you can take hot and cold showers in it. There is a button on the shower head you can push to stop the water while you lather up in order to conserve water and then push it again to get it going. The head/toilet is a pump toilet. You can go number 1 or 2 in it but do not flush toilet paper down the toilet.( this will clog up the system causing it to not work) there is a trash can next to the toilet to put your paper in. The cup in the sink is used to fill with water and empty into the toilet to help flush it. If you have any questions please feel free to call me anytime. Please take off your shoes while on the boat. The marina has a shower and restroom available to use also.

I have a consulting company and am a chef and Kat is a coach and owner of The Simplified Life. We travel often and love to explore new cities. Through our properties, we want you to experience a unique adventure. With The Whisper, we want to bring people onto the boat and let them experience living on the water and all it has to offer. With our newest property, The Camp at Woodside, we can show you a hidden side of the Bay Area. It's your shelter-in-place wooded hideaway during these trying times. We use AirBnB when we travel and are also in the process of offering experiences in the area. We can give local wine tours or kayak/SUP adventure tours.
