Re: Great Charter in Marathon Key

Thanks Bill
I'll bet my sailnet buddies will have some questions for you.
Just how much work is it. You made it look so easy for our little sail.
If you take out two day sails per day of 2 to 4 hours each. Plus have to shop for food and do laundry etc it sounds like a 16 hour day.
I think a lot of us with almost enough money to cruse for while but not quite enough have thought about chartering but it has to be tempered by the reality of the work.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
