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.

Good story, I thought he looked much older then 32. But the sea can do that to you.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

IIRC, sadler and a few others make "unsinkable" monohulls as well.

Six weeks of getting pounded by storms....You either have to wonder what he was doing wrong or what he had majorly pissed off.
