Re: Don't have to be rich to sail

There are a lot sailors I've met without a trust fund. One thing for sure is that we "Good Old Boaters" have to give up other things to be able to go sailing. It's a choice. We also need to fix our own stuff and budget boat upkeep expenditures. The to-do list is actually a priority list based on available funds. It's actually a worthwhile exercise in staying within a budget. Congress could take some lessons from sailors:-)
