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

I've found that once I start doing anything for a living, it takes the life out of it. Once anything becomes a chore and you're no longer learning much every day, it just becomes passe'. Sailing is something I hope does not turn into a chore. We often think, "Wouldn't it be great to do that every day for a living," only to discover later that doing it for a living is not all that great.
