That's because the magazine was all bought up... It is available in most bigger bookstores, like Borders or Barnes & Noble. just not at the airport newsstands, which tend to market towards the business reader.

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.

Like bestfriend, I'm something of a photo junkie. Whenever I stop in a port, I put on an overcoat and go around with about 20 ea 8X10's and when somebody walks by I sez "hey meester, wanna buy a dirty picture?" Not really, but when in baja, I trade an 8X10 for a bucket full of lobsters.

Hey Bestfriend:

there's a couple from up your way with two genius bull dogs sailing south. I would think after a couple weeks on the water, your wife can name her price to get those dogs to crap on a scrap of rug.

Sod Lats and Atts. I had great problems downloading the January issue and never did manage to get February. They couldn't even be bothered to answer my emails. Sub is now expired, there loss I guess cos it sure ain't gonna be renewed.

Sadly though never did get to read CDs article.

They may be sailing south, but the dogs are probably swimming north!

About four years ago I decided I wanted a boat. From that time on I have stayed around home, no parties and worked and saved. (My wife wont let me use savings to buy a boat..She mentions something about lawyers, divorce and eternal damnation). Bought and sold a few things and now I am getting ready to seriously look at boats.
At the end of this year I will be 60 and that is when I promised myself I would be off on an adventure, one way or another.
So far, so good.
Less than a year to go and then I will worry about funding but over the last four years I have learnt that a lot of people will help you IF you ask.
I have asked here on sailnet, owners of boats, boat-builders and business owners.
Even at my age, I think I can still make a living on the water. Or rather, when I land and look for work. At least here in Australia I can.

I think the first thing to do is PREPARE yourself for a lifestyle change. When you do that, things should fall into place.

Good luck and maybe I will see you out there one day and you can tell me how easy it is to live a life YOU choose instead of one forced on you.

Jim.

I'm a male exotic dancer. Later this year -- if things go well at work (fingers crossed!) -- I'll be upgrading to a 1972 Sunfish.
