While I wish them success, as I certainly would anyone at sea, I am inclined towards a jaundiced view. I'd suspect that the age differential is not such an issue as is the woman's youth. I would regard her as being in what I call the transformational years, where opinions and beliefs are formed, and often abandoned as quickly as formed. Were she somewhere upwards of thirty, I'd be much less sceptical. Somewhere west of Suez she decamps, and I just happen to have ten bucks.
As far as the portion of the log you posted, I am of conflicting opinions on it. After concluding that it was a bunch of claptrap, I was wondering if it's origin is some left over communal living sentiments from the sixties, or ignorance of the fact that Captain Bligh has been there, done that, and only missed out on the T-shirt marketing potential. I suspect that they are more likely to be underwritten by Phizer, the maker of Viagra, than they are by the National Geographic Society.
I am hopeful that I shall be proven wrong in all respects, especially hoping that the results of the voyage will transform 20ish women world-wide from being an irritant to older men into adoring admirerers.(g) I'm not risking my ten bucks on that though.
