Until then, you need to get better at reading the Warning Signs... :-)
Buying my own boat will not satisfy my craving for off shore sailing. If I have my own boat, I will end up putting around the boat at the dock all day, week and year, just like most of you folks.

Without my own boat, I can be in Hawaii last week, TCI next week, Central America the week after, and Azores the next!!! Granted, privilege to sail other's boat comes with responsibility and risk. We just have to manage it.

Like I said before, I was shaken but not broken. I am determined as ever. Some may say I am arrogant. Perhaps, but this is my life, I choose to live the what I like it. If my wife and grown children endorse my style, who do I need to get approval.

No regret.

Fine Print:
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
