Ray Dintino and his wife, Judy, maintain a home in Amherst, N.Y. They also spend many summer days and nights aboard their 32-foot Carver, Cloud IX, docked at the Buffalo Launch Club on Grand Island.
Cable TV, wireless Internet, full-size refrigerator, stand-up shower, air conditioning, heating and other features make this home away from home very homelike indeed.
But, as Dintino points out, it's not all relaxation.
"There's always something to fix on a boat, always something to do," he says.
