Wow! That's like 1,000 miles!

I hate pressurized alcohol stoves!

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.

True enough (I've been a little punchy lately - another 13 hour day at work today)

Look at it this way - part of the attraction of sailing is the thrill and adventure. If it was without risk it would have much less attraction for most of us.

I lost a good friend (and his wife) in a small plane crash a mile from where I lived. Two years later my best friend killed himself on a restored 1960 Moto-Guzi within a mile of that spot. I'd have to drive past those sites nearly every day. But I could reconcile my grief knowing that they went out doing what they loved and it beat dying by inches in a nursing home or developing a nasty cancer.
