Of course that kind of credentials requires years of experience. Which Captain Walbridge had. And tell me how did that work out for him. . Experience doesnt gaurentee good decisions or does it? If his experience was one of running hurricanes as was posted on here ( not sure if its a fact or not), and he was successfull running hurricanes, did his experience give hin a false sense of security in them?

If experience leads to good decisions why do I see some people give advice on here to newcomers who want to take a 25 ft boat with no experience to the carribean and beyond and tell them to follow thier dream, that the rest of us are too cautious.
