An interesting thing would be to limit the responses to only people that have ever sailed 100 or so miles from land for...oh say...3-5 days to have gained a little prespective on what it's like to be "alone" out on the water
Would we have different opinions?
Would we have more understanding or would those be more brutal in their comments?
Then lets look at the opinions of cruisers who have cruised with their kids
...I bet you would see a different tone than we are seeing by many posters/experts/second guessers. You wouldn't find me on a trip like that with two kids
of that age, heck I don't have that much energy for two little kids that age on a boat! But then what do I know, I'm a bozo that acccording to my family
and friends put our kids lives in danger
by taking them cruising in the first place.
It's not the finding fault with RH that I don't care for it's the nastiness and almost joy that some people find in point it out. **** we made MANY decisions during our time out cruising that could have ended badly, we all do, and if you can't admit that, then you have a bigger ego and problem than RH.
