Yeah, Terral.... that's what I should have done, too. Howzat go? "Go small...Go NOW!"
I spent years longing, planning, wishing and hoping instead of sailing. I went from denial to thinking I could take a few classes for what a boat costs and get it out of my system. Rather than dope around anymore, I spent my last bit of 'wait' time researching and coming up with "The Plan". Life changes, plans become snarled; but I stayed the course and ended up here.
Either way it works out, I *still* end up with THE boat and time to sail.
Nuthin' wrong with that!
