I am an INFP and have ALL my astrological signs/houses/planets/galaxies/whatever in Aquarius. The guy who did a chart for me said that in 20+ years of dong charts
, he had never seen anything like mine. I don't really have any idea what that means, but Master Jung held charts
to be valid instruments and did one for all his analytical clients I have read.
I have had an almost overwhelming enchantment of sailing, water
, living aboard
, and anything else related to the ocean since I can remember! I lived on board a beautiful (after I finished the restoration) 42' Colonial double cabin
Cruiser in the Chesapeake Bay
for several years, and my first son was born while we lived on board. His nursery was a wicker bassinet screwed down to the vee berth. The overhead mobile never stopped moving! I was lead carpenter
in a small boatshop called The Ocran Boatshop, owned by an obstinate and cranky old one-eyed Armenian who had moved down from Long Island
. He never messed with me though cause he couldn't replace my woodworking skills. Ha!!
I was privileged to be able to construct a Commander Monroe Presto Ketch
from the original plans, eastern white cedar over white oak framing, while I worked there. I did everything except the painting on that one, cotton caulking and all. Spiled and hung two planks a day! I remember when she was launched, with 3 electric
bilge pumps and one gas powered for backup onboard, that we wiped out the bilge with a couple of paper towels. The old fella just squinted at me through his one good eye for a little while and shook his head
. Also got to the point that i could build a really pretty little 16' flatbottomed lapstrake skiff in about 52 hours, including the painting.
Sorry, got kinda lost
in reminiscing there for a minute!
Just purchased a 37' Endeavor ketch
plan B, and am in the process of fitting her (Anicca) out for live-aboard coastal cruising. It's been 30 years since living aboard
, and I can hardly believe it's coming round again. AT LAST!!!!
Docked near New Bern NC, USA.
