Just sayin'... (grin)
Well, he did leave the marina and lived to tell!

I particularly liked reading Bumfuzzle, the folks who did circumnavigate without a shred of prior experience. And the feathers they ruffled on the sailing forums was exceptionally entertaining. Some people just could not reconcile the idea that anyone who was not like them, could actually sail.

(And just for the record, JonEisberg, I'm not saying anything toward you. I've read many insightful, fair and reasoned posts from you.)
