Re: My Horror Story

Haha. I love it. Sounds like Chase when i told him you cant jump that far.

Listen, i remember those years. Been there too. I was the guy out sailing hobies too. Been there done that.

I have avoided the insurance thing because i have a slightly different view than my brethren. I really couldn't care less if you carry it for your boat. Your decision. There was once a saying amongst cruisers that you know you were ready to go when you dropped insurance. I just met another awesome couple with kids that said insurance is a joke in s america. They just sailed from sf to marathon with two boys on a catalina 38... So i take them serious. Other friends of ours on a panda 38 (expensive boat) sail without it.... For the moment. Now listen to the caveat:

I have do e this for a long time. The world is changing. Many marinas and even mooring fields require insurance in the us now. The last two we have used even require you to list them as payees on the policy. No kidding. If not, good riddance.

Keep that in mind on your travels. I actually wish you the best. Heading up your way in next 60 days. Hope to see ya out there. Take a deep breath and have a beer. It all works out, bro. Get your boat together and get out there. You ain't the first person that screwed up or had problems. Builds character.

Just don't hit my boat!! (Snicker)
