So here you go - an off base but somewhat relative relation...

Dreams are those things that can carry one far. Dreams however have limits.

When you are ridiculously beyond yourself... one can hope trains, planes and autos... and create a journey.

A boat however is not like a car, and it is not something in the same means of trains, buses or airplanes.

One can aspire to do great travels, but those travels are more or less dictated by what you can put in to begin with. IN other words its not like signing up for a Carnival Cruise...

A boat for world traveling is akin to owning your first ever car that gets 5 mpg. A little tender care - she takes you to where ever but you also know at anytime she will over-heat, get fouled, or otherwise show her age. A boat is like that. It can be 27 feet - it can be 90 feet. She'll let you know when she is tired like any good hot rod or favorite auto.

To cruise the Carib.. you have to have faith in the Miss. if you do not you will miss the the journey you so self subscribed.

It really is that simple... you have to be captain of your domain and your domain must be in good working order - and if so then the field of dreams is just an orchestration of your proficiency.
