What's Better Than....

Sitting on the deck of your boat early on a beautiful morning enjoying that first cup of espresso and cigarette gazing at the horizon? ( having that espresso kick in and find yourself sitting in the head looking at the mirror and wondering WTF am I doing on a sailboat! )

Re: What's Better Than....

Gotta have that cig in the morning wif me espresso!! Its like the difference between looking at a beautiful woman or having carnal knowledge of one. None the less, its great way to start a day.

Since my wife and kid will be here tonight, I wont be able to enjoy that cig tomorrow morning for a week or so. I dont smoke around my kid.

Hi BlackOak! Take your wife and kid on a two-hour sunset sail, in your boat; starting around 5:30 PM. Play a steel band music CD, in the background. Have some hors-d'oeuvres available; crackers, cheeses, cut-up veggies, a bottle of wine, some fruit juices for the kid, and some prepared deli sandwiches. It really doesn't take much to have a little enjoyment out of life. I am sure, everyone will enjoy this slice of heaven. Sail away! Mauritz

Re: What's Better Than....

What's better than.... buying that towing insurance two months before my oil cooler broke while motoring between two bridges in the ditch! ...and that was after cruising for about forty years without towing insurance. It was like magic! Oh, and sure, all those birds, sunsets and other pretty stuff too.

What's better than having both your grown kids with their spouses and all three grand kids join you and your wife for a week long cruise to Catalina Island? Having them see sea lions and dolphins chasing flying fish and waking up to find 4 tall ships anchored near your boat. Having everyone on the boat together for a week is great. Maybe the only thing better is having them leave at the end of the week.

I enjoy flying/sailing at night. With sailing, however, if you will be anchoring at a cove you'll need an extra set of eyes.
