Re: Newbe with no experience buys big boat


Dont mean to derail the discussion, but just wanted to say how much I loved your book.

I just finished the kindle version in Virgin Gorda (while alternating between your book, Two Years Before the Mast, and Across Islands and Oceans ---- so take pride that yours is right up there with the best of sailing books!)

I really liked your writing style and humor -- dont forget that there is a whole world of sailing out there that isn't squalls, equipment failure, and sleep deprivation (though thats a big part of it) -- sounds like you need to get into a late-model boat and have a few good harbor cruises and sunsets on the mooring!

Keep up the great writing! (and as others have said, the "nighty" scene is also burned into my memory....)
