Re: WOW!!!! This Challenge Has Been Met ....

Zee- keep on keepin' on! I'm rooting for you over here. I can't believe the amount of crew shifts/changes you have had to go through!!

Meds, comfort food, and rest will set you right in no time.

Re: WOW!!!! This Challenge Has Been Met ....

Zeehag,
I think you need a new keyboard OR a big thumbs up for starting a new thread after a few tequilla shots with ensenada Juan. Either way I'm glad you (er Juan) got your boat fixed for the "right" price. Good for you!!
Thanks and sail safe!

This is why you interview the captain and check the vessel carefully( that is your responsibility ) I have crewed on boats with no life raft, leaky stuffing box etc. Some where nightmare trips, some were a blast, It is my job to decide if the risk factors are too high for me.

Exactly Erika. We all make choices in our lives as to what we consider acceptable conditions. What works for one might not necessarily work for another. But it's prudent to ask the right questions before committing if you can.

It's also best to be understanding, I feel, of the situations others have in their lives. If they must leave, so be it. There's no need to lash out. Just move on. In the end it's probably the best thing for both of you.

Zee does make choices to sail in conditions that make some uncomfortable. It's her boat and it's her choice. She's never hid the fact that she sails the way she does. It's no big secret. A quick perusal of her posts will show that she's never hid the fact that she sails with minimal safety gear. Acceptable enough to her tastes, not acceptable to others.

As for the lifevests? Well I bought my own to take with me whenever I go out with anyone's boat. My personal safety is my business and I make sure I'm covered with gear I know will work. It's easy enough to carry along a good lifevest anywhere you go, so I figure, why put that into someone else's hands? Is also why I bought my SPOT, my personal desalinator pump and will eventually buy my own epirb.

In the end the only person truly responsible for me is me.

And we all make decisions for ourselves. Personally I found sailing with Zee a lot of fun. It has it's challenges and there were things that concerned me. But I chose to experience her way of doing things. And it was an experience I will treasure and never forget.

At any rate. I just hope the civility can be maintained here in CF and that these threads don't get out of control like they did a couple of weeks ago when Wolfecon and I left Ensenada. There really is no need for smack talking anyone here.

However I enjoy a good civil discussion about different sailing styles. From comfort of quarters to cooking to how safe must we be to how do we sail? Do you feel safe entering ports at night? Do you prefer to sail in a storm or try to get onto port and ride it out there?

Yeah? Anyone else?

My apologies to all if I lashed out. I was just taken back by the earlier posts, but really do wish Zee all the best on her journey.
