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.

Is security a problem when living on the hook?

I mean general security. Going ashore & leaving boat unattended.

Cool

Stock trading easily funds sailing expenses if you have a capital base to start with and you can do it anywhere over the internet. There is plenty of opportunity to do this becaise of all the ineficiency in the stock market. Not w/o risk just like sailing. A few trades will do it. Garmin made lots of money this year as an example.

I think MCGV22 means security against theft and the possibility of having someone strip the boat clean while you are ashore. There are several bayous around this area where people are living on the hook and have a "neighborhood watch" or so I'm told.

MCVG22...Of course security is an issue, here and in other countries. Some places less than others...some places more. Lock it or lose it.

I get the kids to raise money by having cool-aid stands when they aren't busy at the coal mine or selling off their toys at garage sales!
