Re: New Here (Aspiring Liveaboard)

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousands to point out to you, one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
That “cannot be done,” and you’ll do it.

From "TACKLE THE THING" – By Edgar A. Guest

The Nomad Blog Mother, mother ocean, I have heard you call
Everything I know about cruising I learned from Travis McGee -

I get sea sick watching videos of sailing, well almost
Bonine works for me, with more sailing I build up some resistance.
I ignored most of the same advice you are getting, and never look back.
