I had a close encounter of the Ass Boat on our way to Placencia at nite around 11 pm. It was a wake call for me, since then I have been searching a way to improve my survival at sea.
I found this:
It is not most ideal, but it is better than relying on myself 24/7.
I read, I think, and I act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest on Sailnet, nor I am here for hookup. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of sailing the big Ponds. I am NOT afraid of drowning in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
