Re: Newbe with no experience buys big boat
No doubt, it sounds like an entertaining read...
However, just to keep this guy's endeavor in "perspective"...
His original intention was to sail around the world... Instead, he sailed with the Baja Ha-Ha down to Cabo, hung out around there for a few months, returned to San Diego, and sold the boat...
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.)
