Or as the late danish actor, bookwriter and cruiser Erik Wedersøe wrote:
Land is the most dangerous thing for a boat
He also wrote "2/3 of our globe is water
, the rest is just for docking"
In one of his books
about an Atlantic crossing
(west->east) with just one other crew member
, he describes how one night he get down below to wake up his mate to take over, by knocking on the hatch
, and get the reply "Who is it?"
