Ya I guess I am just pessimistic, what's the term you use to define the people who unknowingly risk their own lives, then ours, to rescue or recover them? Don't get me wrong, I love adventure as much as the next guy, but would you get on that boat for that trip Dog?

Depends on the boat, its condition, the experience of the captain, crew, weather forecast, etc.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks for the info guys, I don't know what you'd consider experienced, but I'm sure mine would be enough to get some worried comments

I'm going to hopefully take her around the island this summer and see how that goes.

I'm not sure if you's are familar with the G23, its also the 21st anniversary edition, with wheel helm, inboard lister petter, diesel heater, very well equipped

If you would like some hints about going around Vancouver Island, let me know. I have done it 8 times.

So that makes it a 23 footer with a wheel helm. That leaves you with a lot of room doesnt it ? Ohh, and an inboard engine. I can see all the space from here, Ahahah !

By the way, Im all for it. And if you dont want to become a burden, then dont bring any form of communication along, they wont even know if you sink so they wont have to "come out of their way" to rescue you like your friend says. Hell that'd probably shut him right up dont you think ? Ahahah ! It's all good fun. Some people climbed El captain, 1000 meters of rock face, without ropes. Who are the others to tell them otherwise ? Let them mind their own business. What's the suicide rate anyways ? I think if every person who commits suicide would do something crazy instead, a who lot more of em would be alive today. Putting your life at risk for something greater gives it meaning.

Thats all I have to say about this.
Keep the spirit!
