Re: This sailing others peoples boats thing is looking like work

At one point in my life, I wondered. So you spend your life working so you can sail. What if you started early in life and worked on other people's boats. Sailing as work, rather than working to sail.

Since then I've gotten to know the captains of some relatively big sail boats. I remember one captain telling me that he really likes the owner, really dislikes the owner's wife, hates the owner's girl friend, and thinks his kids are brats.

That's when I decided my decision wasn't so bad.
