The idea is to die young as late as possible. ~Ashley Montagu
I LOVE this line! May I use it for my sig?
Re liveaboards not leaving the dock, it may just be that you don't see it. Our boat-neighbors who come to the marina every weekend generally see us in our slip. Why should we go out and 'play in traffic' when everyone and thier brother is out on the Bay on a Saturday afternoon? Since we're on the boat every day, we have the luxury of doing our sailing when we have the place to ourselves - say, on a Tuesday evening. That is, if we can get our stuff stowed before dark, as Denise so rightly points out.
