Re: Newbe with no experience buys big boat

I hope to get to your book, Glen. It sounds like a good read. I've enjoyed your bits of the experience here. Nice and honest.

If we put everybody together that bought a boat to go cruising and thought they would sail around the world, and then didn't go around the world, how big a crowd would that be?

The accomplishment to me is you did it, left your shore side life, took off for a while on a boat, came back and now you've written an interesting book about it.

Cruising may not be the panacea that many dream it is. I think you have to bring your own(panacea), not matter where you go. It's ok to say, once is enough too. Living aboard a boat isn't for everybody. You can still buy another boat and just go sailing.
