Re: What Made You Decide to Sail ?

In 1973 the price of gas went from $.29 per gl to $1.00 per gl. A 450 gallon fuel tank became very expensive to fill on a wage of $8 an hr.

Besides the sound of the wind and waves are much more pleasant then the rumbling of two large V8's.

Re: What Made You Decide to Sail ?

I bought another sailboat, this time a Cat, because I believe it to be part of my simple life plan. I want to be sliding in worn out, beat up, bruised, scarred, exhausted, totally spent and spending my last dollar I earned on the last day of my life. So far I'm way ahead of schedule. But the sailing eases the stress.
