Re: The boy behind the gate (new book)
I also enjoyed reading your book. Sailing (and life) are a series of challenges that sometimes require determination to overcome. You and your crew overcame. I suspect that the work and talent required to do what you did would be too much if you had to do it without crew. Would you do the same trip solo? Doubt I would.
I suspect that much of the membership here does not sport multi colored burgee on their boats but even this membership is not quite as monolithic either. See this boat that sails on the east coast: http://www.sailnet.com/forums/latitu...gotta-see.html
I hope the video link still works. Their cabin interior is amazing, no matter what your taste in interior decorating.
I wouldn't want to go sailing alone. I LIKE people and I want to share wonderful moments with my friends and loved ones. That Irwin is gorgeous! However, something tells me she hasn't seen too many 20-30 foot seas!
Thank you for your support, and recognizing the challenges we faced. I really appreciate your input, questions, comments, and new friendship.
