Re: What Is Barefoot Cruising?

I have been "barefoot" (no shoes).......on a "passage" (1086+ miles) ......."offshore" (180+ miles out) ....but the vessel was owned by the captain so no "bareboat" (?) It was fantastic but did not feel like a "cruise" to me.

The meaning has probably changed in the last 11-12 years while this thread was cataleptic before it was resuscitated

Re: What Is Barefoot Cruising?

since we are talking about shoes, the owner actually brought a pair of shoes few days ago...first time there has been shoes on the boat in years.

told her she is getting soft...that's when the fight started...

cheers,

Re: What Is Barefoot Cruising?

Yeah...I've thought it meant cruising where it's warm enough to go barefoot....

Re: What Is Barefoot Cruising?

So, OP from Florida, I think that's answered. Oops last visit was 14-08-2011 12:57 so hopefully nothing untoward happened during the wait.
