I've been hanging out here long enough to know how the word is normally used here. I'm trying to get a better idea of what SeaAir means and is aiming towards.

A house is but a boat so poorly built and so firmly run aground no one would think to try and refloat it.

Re: Sailor to Pilot to Sailor

Welcome aboard!
I started out by buying a Catalina 22 and staying in the BEQ except on weekends or long outings while on active duty Navy.
Was fun and I would do it that way again.
kind regards,
