Re: The Wind Has Changed Direction

Sit down, put your feet up, take a deep breath and have a stiff drink. If the feeling goes away it was just a case of "middle aged crazy". If not, you are doomed like the rest of us.

Re: The Wind Has Changed Direction

The general advice tends to be to get as much experience on different boats as you can before dropping your life savings into one. And, "There is no one perfect boat." Time on the water will give you insight into where you'll find the most happiness on the water.

Re: The Wind Has Changed Direction

The Oxford dictionary has the following definitions of crazy
IMHO only no.2 and archaic apply on this forum.....the rest is a matter of opinion which is what we are all about here.....conclusion we are all crazy one way or another, just choose where you want to be at home sinking or at sea afloat. Bienvenidos al mundo de los locos.

adjective (crazier, craziest)
1 mad, especially as manifested in wild or aggressive behaviour:
Stella went crazy and assaulted a visitor
a crazy look
extremely angry:
the noise was driving me crazy
it was crazy to hope that good might come out of this mess
2 extremely enthusiastic:
I'm crazy about Cindy
[in combination] :
a football-crazy bunch of boys
3 (of an angle) appearing absurdly out of place or unlikely:
the monument leant at a crazy angle
archaic (of a ship or building) full of cracks or flaws; unsound.
noun (plural crazies)
chiefly North American
a mad person.
