Re: Finally took the leap and a massive risk

Yes. I'm sure that whatever the personal suffering, turning back to the water seems to be the way to go. Just spent 6 hours on my 1980 windrose, and for awhile it was the exact kind of distraction I needed.
Yeah,yeah, yeah. It's all a rich tapestry !

You go girl!!
The best of luck

Mary Brickell Village is a much nicer area than Hurricane Harbor area..

I considered docking my boat in that area, but honestly was afraid my car would be vandalized, the boat broken into, or I would get mugged... so I keep my boat behind a private home on the New River...
I'm actually a male my boat is a She31 might have made a bad choice in choosing a handle

I, too, was guilty of assuming you were female. Maybe you could take to signing your posts with a boy type name to reduce the confusion.

Fortunately, the advice is still good, though, everyone wanted to help, and i think are grown up enough to understand that men, as well as women, can have a great deal of pain with a "nasty divorce."

Re: Finally took the leap and a massive risk

I sure feel for both you and Hamburking. As he says, best to keep active. BTW you probably know you have a fairly well-known boat in certain circles (those who love S&S et al.) I have never sailed one but I hear they are great. For 4k if the engine is running and its sailing, that's not too bad. Nothing can sail you away from heartache, or rib pain, but it can fill your days with some fun to help fill the gaps and keep your mind on the better days ahead. I'm on the opposite side and so I have no advice on Fla., sorry. BTW, not sure if you saw this but I remembered I saw your (model of) boat here:http://bluewaterboats.org/she-31/. Looks a lot like LizzyBelle's Ohlson 29 I think.
