Always have extra booze on board. Never have extra bikini tops.

When in doubt...LET IT OUT"

How many times have you seen other boats even off the wind sheeted in hard. Especially newbe sailors but indeed it happens to veterans too!

Eating well and sleeping well are the two hardest things in life. Master those and all else is cake.

Re: Your ONE piece of wisdom...

GREETINGS EARTHLINGS: Never do **** OR BUST, cause it will break when you are depending on it with your life . Marine diesel engins are not designed to be reliable. The anchor chain is as strong as the weackest link. If you think you should reef it should be in already . Make sure somone knows your passage plan, and when you arrive at your destination tell the coastgaurd you have arrived .
KEEP UP YOU LOG AND POSSITION ON CHART (Leagal requirment) look after the boat and the boat will look after you and the best of all GO SAFE .
