Laura and I have heard a lot of "I wish I could go cruising but..."
...my spouses health
...my spouses job
...My dogs, horses, llamas etc.
...I am afraid of (Insert your phobia here - sharks, hurricanes, whatever)
My reason was that I didn't have enough money to buy the forty foot ketch that all the books and magazines had convinced me I needed...
...until a fellow we called "The Mad Scientist" called BS on me one day.
and made me see it for what it was: an excuse. Now I have been happily living aboard and cruising in my 27 foot sloop for 21 years.
So what other excuses have you heard, or made, and how would you overcome them?
What would you say is a legitimate reason to put it off, forgo cruising altogether, or swallow the anchor
once one has gone for time.
