Re: Is it possible to travel by (own) ship as a rule?
Is it possible? Yes. Is it practical? Nor really. You have to remember that when you travel by boat you go very slowly, perhaps 1/100th of the speed of an airplane. Also you need to deal with prevailing winds and currents and storm (cyclone) seasons. Going from California to India and back would really mean sailing around the world. Even with a very fast race boat you would be doing very well to complete this journey in three months and that would only be possible with departures at the right time of year. Better off to get help dealing with the flight phobia.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
