...but after a few days of the goat butting its' head into every conversation, not to mention other things, it grew old. So finding out that we couldn't stay in the marina any longer without insurance we decided to head back out.


So after setting sail with no real plans, like a REAL cruiser, a couple of days went by and we found we hadn't stocked the gallery or filled the water tanks. As we pondered what to do Atoll suddenly said "hey there are too many new taxes in the Med so lets head to Cuba". They thought about it a second or so and ........

Re: A sailing story thread - feel free to add

Now that we are out our multi-day haze, we start thinking about how we can actually get back to sailing.

"We don't need no drogue! We have some perfectly good buckets we can just toss off the stern with a rope. After all we know that a good bucket can just stop a boat in the water!"

Everyone thought it over until Lumpy says "hey can't we just hang 20' of chain and 200' of nylon out insted? I might need that bucket for something!"

Either way everyone agreed that we needed to get underway before we had to pay taxes on the boat. So the rum was restocked and the anchor wayed and we all headed ...
