That's big water out there. Buckeye hasn't done a lot of sailing. He has less than $20,000 to spend on the boat which he plans to sail from Sarasota to Honduras. Of course he isn't familiar with a boat he doesn't yet own. To say that this is an ill-advised passage is not fear mongering. All of this talk about how you've gotta die sometime isn't going to sound so romantic if you get caught in some weather in a boat you're not too familiar with.
Excuse the pun, but this is dead on true.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.
