Re: Kelly-Peterson 44 for Sale
Since it seems I don't have to defend the boat, I will take a minute to defend her owners, if only in a very cursory way. We did graduate from a smaller boat, and we did do sailing classes. That said, we did buy the boat before we should have, but there was a good (timing-type) reason for that that I'm not going to go into. As for me, I kept thinking I could learn to love sailing, and it never happened. Maybe I died in a crappy sailboat in a former life. I have no idea, and I'm way past trying to figure it out.
The one thing that I really do want to clarify is that vertigo and seasickness are two different things. My husband has suffered from both. Seasickness he can tough out. Vertigo puts him flat on his back, for days. This has been a fairly new (in the last year or two) development. I think it's great when women are able to sail a boat on their own, as a usual thing or in the event of illness or incapacitation of the captain. I am not one of them.
PS About this emoticon to my right, spewing every ten seconds.... very realistic. I feel like I can smell the barf.
