I started out as a broke sailor with a broken engine and then evolved into purist. Once you've sailed as long and far as I have with no engine it becomes almost like an addiction. And a healthy ground tackle supply is essential. It's been my insurance for over 20 years. I don't drag, I used to, but I haven't in a long long time. and Ive been anchored out for about 8000 day's! in all conditions, all over the Caribbean and the Bahamas and Fla.
