The remarks I made about Not having what it takes might be a little harsh. But I live the Dream, and the problems that come along with that dream...And all is worth it... The Myth, Its real, and you have to find that balance point to find it for yourself.
The $15,000. you have to drop. I can understand it hurts.. thats a years kitty for me..
But after all the work and the pain you'll have to go through, one day you'll wake up and look out the port-hole as the sun rises, the morning fog lays over water in a mist, the water so smooth not a ripple to be found, and then a coupe of wild ducks fly in and coast to a stop next to your boat, a breeze now comes over the water and the ripples form and you can smell the hint of salt on the air. You wife comes up from behind and puts her arms around you and looks over your shoulder to share the morning sights, and your Gran-son comes up, tugs on your pants and asks his favorite gran-pa if they can go out fishin this morning.
Ya Hoffa, it all worth it........every last damn second you have to sweat you butt off fixin that boat.
Remember, you have to slay the dragon before you can kiss the Princess
