Re: I've never sailed in my life... talk me into it.

If you haven't heard the warnings by now there's no hope, you are likely stubburn enough to make a sailor.
I recall leaning down into a bielge to ask a senior boatwright if I should buy another boat he had refastened some years earlier. He gave me a sort of mixed grumbling review so asked again: "Are you saying I should walk away from it sir?"
He rolled out from beneath the companionway covered in black. "No, not at all." He added most calmly. "I'm saying you should *#*+ing RUN AWAY FROM IT!!!" He yelled in all earnest.
