I find that so funny

did any of you do it with a smart phone, because would be even funnier
This is where the cruising / sailing definitions diverge: one can sail on a wing and a prayer but it takes a smartphone, a genset and a mystic 'k number' to cruise.

Maybe this will give you some inspiration.

Its cheaper than you think if you do actually think.

My advice: stop giving me advice about how to live/cruise/hang out. I'm managing to do ok with those with whom I hang out. They're mostly other cruisers. Some have complex boats, some have simple, few complain very much, many have had to stay put somewhere while fixing their boat... including us, and our boat is on the simple side.

Like I said, you are unusual.

Jim
Our boat remains on the hard in the off season, we do ALL of our own maintenance including all systems, bottom scraping, engine and antifoul painting. You should already know this from the extensive how to threads I've written on this forum.

My advice: Stop complaining about the advice I offer up freely to other cruisers just because it differs from your steadfast opinions.

I somehow have missed all those doubtless worthwhile threads, Ken. Mostly I read how-to threads by Minaret...

But back to the point, mate: I didn't reference your advice, I complained about your saying that no cruisers ever found the complex systems of their boats to interfere with their cruising. Advice freely offered up is ok with me, even if it differs from what I would advise... but then you should grant me and others the same courtesy, shouldn't you?

One more time. NOT mutual funds, INDEX funds. Lower overhead, better return.

And when this bubble bursts again, like 2008 and every decade before, you'll somehow have the nerve to not cash out at the bottom, unlike every other retired Average Joe? Good luck on that one.

Yes, a telling comment, my friend.

Re: Professional therapy, motivational coach, or CF?

The real point is that there are many ways to live this life we call cruising. There is no one-way, no single Right Answer. Each of us makes our own choices based on our needs, our wants our priorities, and our capabilities (skills, age, time, money, etc.).

The problem with these discussions is that we all end up (me included) defending our way as the best way (or the only way). It makes for tedious, although sometimes perversely entertaining, discussions.

I would gladly raise a glass almost everyone here. And I'm sure we'd get along famously.

You idiots should knock this crap off. MY way is the RIGHT way, and I don't even know for sure what it is yet.

Yes, we males have a built in meter just below our waistline indicating cold...

At the moment, I am doing the same. I have a Machine Shop and work with aspiring inventors, taking their concepts to reality. My SSI would not support my cruising habit and my bills on terra firma. It has worked in Mx for 2 seasons. Next year should see me in the South Pacific and not sure how that will play out financially. There are seasons there as well. As long as I can work and cruise, I will. I'm not going to have a miserable cruising lifestyle because i can't afford it. I would do something different if that happened.
For some selling everything is the way to go. When I'm in my 70's i will need a home to live in. Can't see walking up the docks to shower and shat in a community head.

Re: Professional therapy, motivational coach, or CF?

Yep.

I am 100% conversant with Mike's way of seeing the world.

There are two ways of explaining democracy:

One says the majority tells the minority how to live. This one is also known as the tyrany of the majority.

The other is the majority is seen as the major minority, and all minorities are allowed to live as they please. This is called the enlightened anarchy.

Have your pick. (yeah, finally, I said it)

Every one is different. Some of us need plenty of social/emotional/financial cushioning. Others dive head first into the thing called life. No way is better than any other.

Know thyself. Act according to YOUR mental kit, not to someone else's.

If you have plenty of fears and doubts, stay put, think, plan, go when you feel you ARE ready.

If you happen to have a bohemian rhapsody playing in your chest, go for it, live it now, save for it later.

Learn what you are, and then live accordingly. And we learn what we are by simply living our lives and watching ourselves. That simple.

Psychology for the nulls ;-)

Cheers, love,
b.
