I enjoy reading Roger Jones' blog Sailing Reboot
. He single hands his 42 ft Catalina, which he shares with his cat, XO. The genesis of his blog precedes his actual departure by quite a bit. If memory serves, he got underway mid-year of 2009. Start with July.
Personally, I think he has a bad case of wanderlust, so he's in it for the travel.
I don't think you'll get a lot of the internal feelings stuff, but you can read it and decide for yourself.
