Re: intervention councelor(s) needed...
You will be fine. First turn your head, rotate your dingy 180 degrees... away from that fine ship built from recycling materials...that will need much care, replacement, even more elbow grease and safety materials to protect you, so many more times..
Now take one step, dig in with an oar.. ok that is good... the next step, oar...ok, you are doing fine keep going... YES! You can do it!.... no do not think of turning back, your blood shall turn to turpentine... That's good... keep going.
Say, did you hear there are a mess of boats for sale, just around the point?
I saw a 50' Gulfstar for about $1000/ft... it might need a bit of work...
