Re: Paying buddy boat to do repairs

Sailors going in the same direction tend to run into each other regularly in anchorages along the way, so pretty early into the trip you will build friendships with like minded people. Additionally, many spots you will visit/ stop over have boaters that are either transiting or even living in the area and the local "coconut telegraph" will point you in the direction of competent, honest tradesmen to assist with projects and repairs.

Not my mother, and not my grandchildren.

But it effectively destroyed the last 9 years of - effectively "not" - cruising.

Go now.

Had we been actively cruising in that period, the other person on the boat likely would not have lost her nerve, and would still have been able to fly in for grandkid visits as was done in the first several years.

Boat - my only home for 15 years - is as good as sold now, and I fear my cruising days - despite the putative new owner being anxious to have us cruise with him - are over.

Stories of dubious provenance?
