The New York Post did a little story on me and my boat!
"Marina life is also a ball for Kristina Marino. The 32-year-old — who works in marketing and has her own jewelry line — is spending the summer on a 1967 Euroline craft at a small marina in Jamaica Bay, Queens. It’s quite a change of pace from the Williamsburg apartment where she’ll return in the winter. “The marina is so social,” she says. “Everyone knows everyone. It’s like a college dorm.”
Marino’s boat was in rough shape when she began living on it, and she spent days cleaning and painting every inch of the interior. “I’m not handy at all; I can’t even put together Ikea furniture,” she says. “I felt so accomplished when this was done.”
She finds sea life fun, if slightly rugged: The boat has no toilet or internet, and cellphone reception is spotty. As with many small watercraft, her bed is in the V-berth — the pointed front of the boat — so it’s challenging to find sheets that fit. She has no running water, but she attached a hose to the marina’s spigot and hung a milk crate over the side of the boat for a makeshift sink. “It’s essentially glamping,” she says."
