No big secrets- got the boat bug a few years ago, thought it was a passing fantasy- web surfed, then bought books, got reminiscent about past expedition stuff- more books- just realized Reading is not Doing, and the only way to find out if this for me is to get started. As the plans started to develope it became clear I need to be talking to folks in the act as it were. I've lived out of backpacks, canoes- worked wilderness therapy, blah blah. Always lived Spartan life, seems like that might be more pleasant in a traveling fashion. Headed to sailing school in Puget Sound this summer to get the ball rolling. Any heads up will be great- mostly counting jelly beans right now. More soon, and thanks for the welcome.

There are good sides to being HAD. Just ask the happy looking sheep there. Anyway...let's get down to business: I have repeatedly heard that wooden boats, and anything over 20 yr old is either impossible, or fisccally prhibitive to insure, yet this is often a marina requirement. What gives? does this apply to liability only as well? (I haven't had guts enoutgh to discuss any of this with my insurance agent yet). My budget is gonna put me in that situation so far as I can tell.
