Re: Newbe with no experience buys big boat
@glenndamato, just finished reading your book, excellent read I must say! I think most of the hell you caught was from jumping in the pool full force without knowing a thing. I think you done well considering all that had happened. I give you a big thumbs up for trying, that's more then what many people can say. I would say more but rather not spoil it in case others want to read the book.
Four years ago, I caught hell on a solo kayaking trip to a barrier island in the gulf. I did not think I would live to see my 40th birthday which was one week away when this happened but somehow I am here. After this happened, I remember saying I would never touch another paddle or kayak again. This was FALSE, I would soon after go kayaking many times and still kayak to this day and love it. I may one day write a book on my experience. So as I was saying earlier in this thread before I read your book, I think you should re-visit sailing again but just on a more casual level for now.
