THANK YOU EVERYONE! THE DAD HAS BEEN FOUND!
He did not go to the Panama Canal
. He did not even make it close to the Panama Canal
from what I understand. I didn't get to talk to him long, for some reason he called me from North Florida
, which makes no sense as to why I couldn't get him on his cell phone
. I also didn't get a chance to ask him where the heck he'd been for 2 weeks. But, I suspect, sailing along wherever he wanted to go.
But, he's getting rained on.
My question is if anyone has any books
or websites or classes
they could recommend for me. I obviously have learned I know nothing about boats, and all I did as a kid was what my father told me. I paid attention to his directions, but I never followed the technical parts
, and only followed his orders. I rarely asked why, because I felt safe that he did know what he was doing. Now, I realize if I knew more, I'd feel safer. I also am buying
him a phone
as soon as he gets back.
I can go aboard with him and have him show me everything, but is there an overall course that I could take to be better prepared?
I'm serious about this, and I want to learn.
BEST TO ALL OF YOU!
