Cruisingdream: Thanks for the link to a great article.

Gone Sailing: Does your original question on Draft have to do with references to the advisability of a shallow draft when sailing the Caribean?

To All: I'll have to admit, I'm a 'leap before I look' or 'ready-fire-aim' kind of guy. I've been that way all my life. I suspect that if I had sat back and coldly examined the risk of an undertaking when compared to my relative inexperience or lack of preparation, I would have missed all of the BEST experiences in my life. I wouldn't have married my Bride of 32 years when I was 19, I wouldn't have had children, I wouldn't have joined the Army as a PFC when I was 27 and I wouldn't have bought a sailboat (my first boat whatsoever) when I was 47. Will I be ready to cast off when I retire? Probably not, but I suspect I will anyway. God willing, I won't be another one of your statistics but here's to the dreamers like Gonesailing40! Keep giving him (and me) your doses of reality. We really do need it from time to time.
