Re: "The 2 happiest days of a boatowners life are..."
Yes, responsible as well.. no doubt. That's part of the allure too though.. no?
How many times in are lives are our destiny's really "in our own hands?"
My point being that selling the boat is letting go more than a floating car. It's letting go of your chance to sit in the Capt's chair, come what may. Maybe I just watch too much star trek.. lol. We have sensors (radar, AIS), comms (vhf).. I'm holding out for phasers!
That's my list 1) phasers, 2) barrier coat, 3) soft rigging. I wouldn't have to worry about radar, or even standing watch, if I could just vaporize any cargo ships w constant bearing/closing range. That's what Capt. Picard calls an "intercept course!"
Mine is a 73 or 74 too. The title and the hull plate don't agree. Either way, hull # low 500's. Annapolis is one of my intermediate goals for my first season.
We learn by doing.
