Not in order
I love working and being on it as much as going out on it.
Underway it's like part of me, I feel the boat. Don't need to look to know if she's in the groove or not.
Talks to me when something's not right. Can't be more specific.
Even at anchor she's alive. Sleeping with the motion and sounds.
She's a complete world. All the systems to know and refine till they're just right.
Buying a boat isn't logical in the first place ergo boat expenses arn't and don't need justifcation.
When your're sailing you can't do anything else. No interruptions no deadlines.
Always something new to do and learn
Talking boats with other boat people.
