Re: I would have....

I would have GOT a small boat after having spent years going around and sailing on other people's boats because as I've read here that is the only way to learn to sail, BUT decided to get a 39' boat as my starter cruiser boat that could sail anywhere I wanted to go in order to skip right to learning how to cruise; until after 2 years decided a bigger boat was more comfortable and worth it in the long run. This was possible because I knew basic navigation, had a GPS/chart plotter, knew how to read up on things etc and already knew I wasn't in general an idiot.

I would have bought a Nordhavn or Krogan but I couldn't afford one.

Re: I would have....

I would have gotten laid when I was in eighth grade by a friendly girl with big hooters, but I was too young to take advantage of the signs I was being given...
