Let’s assume you live in an apartment or a house in Connecticut. And your spouse suddenly suggests the two of you move to the North Pole to live in an igloo.

Now, what if your spouse were to ask you to live on a boat? How would you react? Judy Haigh didn’t ask, “Who did I marry?” but veto the possibility emphatically when her husband Sam brought up the idea. Yet for the last 27 years they have lived on The General, a boat on the river in Norwalk.
