I was on a training event once where a guys said, "A plan is a list of stuff that ain't going to happen" and for the same reason. I guess a lot of places in the military have similar sayings.

As a military guy, we always said "no plan survives first contact with the enemy" and "the enemy always gets a vote on your plan." :-)

Re: Does a first sail ever go as planned?

I'm certain you made the proper choice to return to the dock and fix the problem... part two, not going back out was an equally good decision. All too often when tired (or stressed) mistakes happen and judgment is clouded by fatigue. Somehow getting down into the bilge to repair successfully the stuffing box counts in my book as something that needs pondering afterwards, not the physically and mentally demanding job of sailing a boat you're still learning.

At least that's my take. As you become more experienced with repairing underway you'll have the confidence to repair "out there" but for now, being in a place where you could have gotten assistance or a second opinion strikes me as smart. It's the "heroes" that end up in the news for some bonehead fiasco....

Good Job Cap'n Daniel.
