boat is 36' & sound....rigging & sails solid....engine runs like a top...vhf radio
, & GPS
.....I'm the one that's not sound....hahaha....At the risk of waxing philosphical . Many go to sea because it's their dream . I'm being driven back to it . I hardly recognise the world I grew up in anymore & the courts have taken everything I ever worked for in my life & given it to my wife of 14 months who isn't even a citizen . After 2 years in court I'm going fugitive . The boat is my hideout . Severing all the ties of my formal life should be done by end of Oct. Need to get the boat down to a way cheap slip 1st part of Nov . I appreciate the advise on the E.P.I.R.B. I had no notion they could be rented . Have a raft . Not to minamize risk , but a storm at sea would be reassuring to me at this point . At least that would make more sense then what I've seen of the " polite society " last 2 years . My sincere thanks again guys for the concern & advise .
