Well, I'm never crossing an ocean... Seriously--I'm not, and don't wish I could!
My boats have all been small.
But I LEARN so much from y'all! Seriously! Maybe not in detail, but in principal.
I'm not sure what I have to share, but I learn a lot here!
BTW--those of you with "Two -Foot -It is"...it's not my call, but it's less often the size of the boat than you think! Although, having just had a birthday, I can see the allure...
Oh! I almost forgot--bless you all, because no one is as free as a man* with a boat, an anchor
and no schedule but wind
, tide and weather!
*Man = Human Being because I went to school
way back when, at a time when we thought elegance of language, and the old rules of grammar and word usage counted....
