I wanted to do pretty much the same thing.
At seven-teen I decided......
My family had no money for vacations and I loved the water, so right out of high school...I joined the USN.

Became involved in OPS, been just about everywhere and.....
after enlistment, finished my education (the military gave me a respect for self disipline and achieving goals)
Currently I'm the financial auditor of a multi-milllion dollar company.
(unfortunately, I'm not paid like you think.. or I would wish...)
I choose a small boat because I don't have alot of time avail and it's good for me.
I will tell you this...I've seen some VERY nasty storms.....
and that was on a 250ft boat....kicked our butt!!!!
Literally tying yourself to your bunk so you dont fall out.
The pleasure of it all.....I have stories that are so funny and odd, I can't repeat them!!!!!

O'day 22
