Re: cruisers 10 comendments...

I don't know if I have ten, but I'll just begin and see how far it goes.
1- Don't make comittments to be at a destination at a specific time.
2- Be more attentive to function than pretty.
3- Depart early,- anchor early
4- Don't move across questionable flats on the high tide.
5- Deploy a little extra rode.
6- Respect the weather.
7- Enjoy where you are,- everyplace is exotic by someone's reference.
8- If you fix it yourself you will be the master of your fate.
9- Any strange sound or vibration will haunt you until you find the source.
10- The visual world trumps the virtual world.

Thou shalt not finish thy "to do" list.
(which would create the incorrect sense of lethargy in the rest of us...)

(which would create a rift in the time space continuum...)

There... I fixed it for you. I would be like dividing by zero.
