Dinghy Dream Analysis

My wife just woke up and came down and told me of her dream. She says she dreamed she took off in the dingy to pick-up some friends to bring out to the boat (she's only driven the dingy herself once). So she has 10 people in our 4 person dingy and takes off, only to be going down a snow covered ski sloop with people flying out of the dingy as she skis down the sloop. Then she woke up!

We seem to have someone for any knowledge need on site, so who can analyse this?

Was she in Nantucket? A Nantucket sleigh ride?

I don't know about analyzing, but I thoroughly enjoy dreams like that!! Much saner and less chaotic than the usual ones ...............

My completely off-the-cuff would be a concern about losing control of the dinghy. If she's only driven it once, maybe she's feeling the need for a little practice - before she actually needs to use it for anything. That's what it would mean to me, but what she thinks it means is the only interpretation that really counts -- Except for some hard core new-age-y types, not many people put much stock in dream analysis anymore. Our personal interpretations of the world vary too much.
GordMay - I love that link!

sounds like she's tired of all you old people slowing her down, she wants a faster boat.

I had her do this last weekend; lanuch the dingy, start it, motor around, come back, put it back on the davits and secure it. She has been a passenger before, but had never done it herself (hadn't even started it before).

I was surprised she motored around the harbour as long as she did. While watching her I was trying to decide if she was having fun, or if she couldn't turn and was just letting the dingy do it's thing. best part was the 4 tries it took to get back to the boat; would get within 2 feet and then drift away requiring a loooooong circle back.

When she started to tell me the dream this morning I thought it was going to be a "I dreamed I took the dingy out, .....and couldn't get back!"

Maybe I'll have her put the spinnaker up by herself and see what happens with that dream.
