Drifter, whenever my trip gets goin florida is already going to be my first stop cause I got some friends who live up there.So I'll keep you posted, although it will be a fair while till this trip gets started. I was supposed to go to daytona for spring break next week with all my friends but I decided to go home and work to make some money.......time to start making some sacrifices!

I always knew you were a 50yo guy just winding the board up.

You can not be a member of Generation Y if you can even spell the word "sacrifice". (With the absolute and total exception of members of the armed forces of that generation).

A True Adventurer

stillraining, I looked into that picture you posted on the first page. That guy has traveled alot of places in that 19ft boat including crossing the atlantic, thats pretty cool.Small boats can definitly get the job done, although I'm not trying to get something that small, around 24-30 is my ideal size range. His website is Sailing around the world alone with Carina if anyone wants to check it out.

My generation isn't that much of a loss,we are the ones who are gonna have to clean up all the pollution and environmental problems left for us to deal with. But it would have been nice to have lived in an age where nova's and chevelle's were daily drivers and the gas was nice and cheap.

But anyways back to sailing,do yall think it's worth the upgrade to roller furling for a singlehander?Although it seems many get along without.
