Re: The future of the sailing world. Why are there so few young people cruising??
That's true but you are also locked in to moorage, insurance, haulouts etc. etc.
Without secure, well paid employment, it's a commitment few are willing to make.
That's true< I lost my boat twice to yard's. had to borrow to get it back. The only insurance. I've ever had was good anchors , common sense, caution, and decent luck. Mind you my boat has sunk twice and knocked off it's stands in huricane Wilma. I anchor for free, except for the year spent at Miami beach Marina back in 1993 when it was 350 a month and some DYI live aboard yards, I've been on the hook for free. I have no systems so that makes it cheap.
