Ben Kuykendall and his girlfriend, Christina Terry, make do with less on his 31-foot (nine-meter) sloop, the Pequod, moored for the past two years at the Gangplank Marina. A captain in the Army, Kuykendall walks across the 14th Street Bridge to his job at the Pentagon while Terry, a pastry chef, walks to her job in D.C. Theyve limited their use of dish detergent to an eight-ounce (.24-liter) bottle over the past year and a half. Were not tree huggers or anything, says Kuykendall. We just try not to pollute the environment. (Of course it helps that they only have two plates, two glasses, and a few pots and pans.) During winters, ceramic heaters keep the boat comfortable. I suppose well live here one more year, until I finish my current assignment, says Kuykendall. After that, who knows where well go.
