Re: The great things about owning a sailboat that no one tells you about

That feeling of having a link to history and/or tradition.

Also: you always have a big effing swimming pool.

Oh, and some of the funny words you get to use - like a secret code with your sailing friends.

1989 Hunter 30'
Southern Georgian Bay

Visualize the vastness of the oceans; the infinity of the heavens; the fickleness of the wind; the artistry of the craft and the frailty of the sailor. The oneness that may be achieved through the harmony of these things may lead one to enlightenment. - Flying Welshman
