What classes to take
I expect to retire in a couple years.
When I retire I plan on doing something sailing related because I don't think I would do well doing nothing.
Under the theory that you never know what the future will bring I'm taking advantage of the time I have to collect experience and certifications that might potentially be useful.
I have achieved my USCG Captains licence.
ASA sailor teachers certificate, 201,203,204,205
I have just signed up for the ASA radar endorsement.
I have scheduled to get my HAM radio license.
I will probably get my CT concealed carry permit.
I am writing for a local boating paper
I've been doing a couple deliveries a year with sailopo.com
So what else could I do to:
1. Improve my resume
2. Collect certifications that might be useful
3. Learn something
4. Have fun
Number four is the most important.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
