Build your offshore cruiser out of steel, and worry far less about hitting things at night ( Like Fukashima debris)

Re: Your ONE piece of wisdom...

1) better to be at the bar wishing you were sailing, then sailing wishing you were at the bar.

2) life is measured by the number of miles sailed

3) step up into the liferaft

Re: Your ONE piece of wisdom...

Before yelling at your significant other for sitting in front of the depth gauge when you think the depth is fast approaching your draft... make sure it IS the depth gauge you have been watching, and NOT the boat speed indicator!

Which reminds me of the age old law of the sea.

If you clogged it, you fix it. Don't care if you're only 7.

Re: Your ONE piece of wisdom...

Never trust any ONE thing!
Weather report
GPS
Chart
Buoy's
Local Knowledge
Lights
Radar
Depth finder
Pilot book
Internet

Confirm everything.
One is useful, two is close but three is trustworthy

Re: Your ONE piece of wisdom...

You never have to be bored on a boat. There is always something that needs tinkering.

95 Catalina 30 Island Time

The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective." - Henry David Thoreau
