Re: The boy behind the gate (new book)

Since you spent 6 years on one boat and probably had a chance to board dozens of fellow cruiser's boats and listened to probably hundreds of stories talk to us a little about boat choice. What seemed to work out the best for what size crew and sailing style and why.
Selecting a boat seems to be one of the first big decisions.
If you were do do some serious sailing again would would you buy?

Did you have health insurance and if so how did that work out?
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
