Boat Choices: Double-Check
Look folks. There''s got to be a happy medium somewhere in here. I genuinely appreciate all your advice, including your admonitions to "do it right". But I''m leaning more toward Nike''s slogan: "Just do it".
I could spend the rest of my life reading books and talking to sailors in the interest of getting ready, and end up dying without ever having set sail. There are just too many experiences to be had and places in the world to see to put off getting started much longer.
Having said that, I''m counting on my upcoming instructional voyage to give me a lot more information on how much I can handle and when. In the meantime, I will welcome whatever additional input you have to offer, particularly with regard to your recommendations of suitable boats.
Thanks so much for your time and consideration.
