Knothead, Thanks for the advice......now, obviously the reason I am on this site is that I have an interest in SAILING. Thus, the need from those who know better than I, advice. and for that I thank you. I will seriously consider hitching a ride but idealy, I wanted to make the trip myself or with accompanying "experienced" crew. I'm sure you understand.
as for you gtod, see me out behind the shed..........(see your PM!)
I HATE condescention!
Poverty motivates me in ways prosperity never could.
