Re: Way to go; the boat or rest home?

Looks like old home week. LOL. I am also a Viet Vet. and Founder of Texas County Veterans Inc. and I was born in the Bronx.
I've watched as Vets have gone into the nursing homes. Most don't last past 2 months it seems.
I have (2) 100% disabilities from the VA but I get up every morning. I will sail till I die without regrets be it tomorrow or 10 or more years. My life is my own so drink up me hearties there is a tide waiting on us.

Re: Way to Go; the Boat or Rest Home?

I can relate about the tides, some call me lazy, some call me smart, but anytime I have to work on the boat, I plan it around mean high water. I go down the ramp about halfway through the rising tide, and try to get back up the ramp no later than 1 hour after high tide. Anyway, I am planning on a variation of the scuttling the vessel with me on it. When I feel the time is nigh, and I take my final voyage, I intend to leave a treasure hunt behind with my younger kin, and whom ever can figure it out will find my boat as their inheritance. For me, it will be an anchor on my burial shroud to take me down to Davy Jone's locker. We all owe a death in this life, I hope to make it on my own terms.

DUH! It was a metaphor or whatever you call it. Gees, a guy can't get a break around here. LOL. Anyway as long as the Grog is flowing we can catch the next one. What do you do with a drunken sailor. What do you do with a drunken sailor. What do you do with a drunken sailor early in the morning. YA.

Put him to bed with the Capt'n daughter, of course.

The quote is "time waits for no man"
I made it "tide waits for no man"

Oh, never mind........

That's it, an analogy. Anyway since I missed it because it wouldn't wait I enjoyed a few more with the crew. Maybe more than a few more.

Re: Way to Go; the Boat or Rest Home?

I'm new to being a liveaboard and not yet a cruiser, but I do love it. When my time comes (and assuming I have notice), my end of life fantasy is to sail to the best place to hunt pirates.I'm kidding...I think.

Re: Way to Go; the Boat or Rest Home?

To hunt pirates - Only Kidding? What about Blackbeard, Morgan, Black Bart, and all those other pirate ghosts around the Carribbean.

Re: Way to Go; the Boat or Rest Home?
