Re: New and with a lot of questions

I can relate, I was once in your shoes a life time ago it seems, although I was never 6'4"!! I was young and impetuous and had this DREAM!!! And I was determined to acquire a yacht and sail around the world. I ended up doing just that, and I am happy to answer any questions you might like to ask. I will say that I wrote a book after all was said and done and it included all my thoughts on WHY I wanted to do this, and how I decided to build my boat and how to learn to sail her and navigate her etc. The book is an ebook on amazon and it's called days of deja vu by jonathan reid (me) this may sound like a shameless plug, but it is my story from beginning to end with photos and glossary for nautical terms and lots of fun reading...
