Re: Im buying a big boat! But i have never sailed

Ok Boy:
You are a kid. I lost my son 16 months ago. I like kids. I like you already.
Pay attention
Pay attention
to the good advice you are getting here. We want you to have a great sailing experience.

But you are a kid,
You make the bold move. I'm sure that the rest of us here will have your back. You can at least count on me and I'm sure the rest of us are lined up to help.

If it is a mistake then in time you can look back and say, "Boy, was I stupid." I have said that several times and I am still being stupid. It's what you do as you are growing up. Embrace it and trust your self confidence. The world will beat you down whe the time is ripe. Be a survivor.

Then, you can fly to Seattle, rent a car, drive the 2 hours north to my beach shack and we can reflect. I have a room waiting for you. I look forward to that day.
