What is with all the people crawling out of the wood work trying to get boats, gear, equipment, etc for cheap or free??? NickL, WindRider68, and BigDreamThinWallet are all looking for freebies or had links to sites begging for donations.
Kind of sad and pathetic in many ways, especially considering the hard work and sacrifices most of us have had to make to get to the point where we could go sailing on our own terms. Is there something I'm missing about what they're asking, and the way they're doing it?

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.
