I plan on taking a yr or two off( depending on how long my savings allow) and move aboard a boat so I can find out if this is for me. This has been a dream of mine for a long time but I have been working in a landlocked state so I kinda have to jump in wholehearted.
Aha, Cheers Gord, as in Dr Jekyl. Didn't spot that. I'm getting old ya know. But hey, Jay is easier.
Had a similar dream. Still do. Had a few boats, and also had those moments when I have decided "this is definately NOT for me" as whipplashed by F11 in the North Sea. But, funny
moderates, sun comes out, stomach settles, go ashore, and you know what?
From the moment the attraction of shore wears off (usually measured in hours at most), I am bitting at the bit to get back afloat again.
Don't know why. Can't put my finger on it. You've just got to try it and see.
Meet some cracking nice people
You truly are master of your own domain (Red Sea apart).
Have to let you know on that one.
