No thanks, do not need to deal with a 23 yr old.......have as of yesterday the 21'st, a 15 yr old, along with an 18 yr old daughter, and a absolutly lovely 53 yr old bride! Much better than the 23 yr old, for ALL the reasons Alex mentioned!

Nevermind that she has never sailed outside the Hudson, but why plan to voyage for 1,000 days w/ no port calls or walk on solid ground? And whats with mapping a course in the shape of a heart?

Not to be a killjoy but this voyage will be derailed within 60 days. There seems to be too much idealism in the approach. It sounds a little insane.

Except for the problem of provisions and possibly running out of books and music I can easily understand the no ports of call.

The heart shape is obviously a piece of new age feel good ******** that even turns the stomach of a BHl like I'm supposed to be.

I think you should show more confidence in them . Good Lord man, a mid fifties ageing hippy with his never been sailing before 23 year old girlfriend in a timber 70' schooner ? What's to worry about ?

Did you read the website ? They were waved off by the phar...ers ex wife. Come on now, these are people with their feet firmly planted in solid mush. Sod that for a joke, if any of my ex's still even like me then I have failed miserably. (Oh, I checked, I have not failed miserably at all. They all confirm either complete disinterest or absolute loathing.)

sure 1,000 days/no ports of call planned is doable but not when you add a 23 yo who has never voyaged before into the mix.

A funny post TDW.

I have read elsewhere that this guy has made a career out of obtaining sponsors for this event and has only now set out on it because he has been evicted from his slip and is being pursued for child-support. But this also could be made up by jealous desk-jockeys.

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.

Sorry

I know its a day late and a dollar short but sorry for the bad link. Thanks Matt for fixing it. The whole thing smells of a publicity stunt to me. Anyone want to sponsor me so I can sail around the world. David
