The Boathouse Lifestyle

Waking up for work is arguably one of the more daunting tasks of a daily routine. That is, unless you like what you do after you wake up: if you work at a boathouse, this task doesn't seem half bad.

To dockstaffers, morning decisions come easy. Your closet is not dissimilar to that of Doug Funny or Homer Simpson, boasting matching orange tanks and tees, boardshorts, and cut offs. We're a shower-at-night crowd (read: right after work), which eliminates one extra morning time step. As for a commute, most of us bike or walk; the more nautical in the crowd live on houseboats and commute by water. It beats traffic, and there's nothing like a calm morning on the river.
