Re: What's your dream boat?
The marketing industry that runs this culture of ours would like people to think that the way to impress someone with a boat is by doing so with the latest greatest 6 figure boat on the market. Though what is actually impressive is for someone to come into a crowded anchorage under sail and drop the hook all in one clean motion, then raise anchor under sail the next morning. Docking can be equally impressive.....unlike impressing people with a show of how much money you can spend on your boat, showing your actual ability by doing something everyone should (but rarely does) know how to do creates an inner warmth...it doesn't matter what they say.
