Sounds like you are venting at yourself for listening to the nay sayers. Something I have learned is to listen, chew on it, and spit out what doesn't make sense. The rest I put in a pigeon hole somewhere in my brain. Hopefully I will remember which hole it is in when I need it!

Everybody gets through life differently. Some are good with their hands. Some can imagine what has never been seen, DaVinci, some are creative, some are brain surgeons, pilots, mechanics, etc. etc., but no one man can do it all.

What works for you may not work for someone else who has two left hands. Then again they may have skills you will rely on some day, that brain surgery, etc. etc. Many times in life you will find it is not what was said, but how it was said............i2f

20 MPH ain't fast unless, you do it in a 1000sq 3/2 house on 10foot waves

This is one of the main sentiments of yours that I totally agree with. There are FAR more people who are eager to tell you all the reasons you shouldn't; than those who are willing to tell you how you can.

The latter group is far more fun to hang out with. I've definitely learned that around here.

Thanks for the responses, dude. Sound pretty reasonable to me.

Definately have to agree w/ you imagine2frolic it takes the whole spectrum to make it all come together. it would be pretty boring if everybody was exactly alike.

Appreciate the sentimate Smack.

Here around Daytona Beach their seems to be more and more boats semi-perminently appearing at anchor. It's obvious that they are becoming residences. I don't know if it's due to the easing and clarification of the anchoring laws or the failing local economy.
I thought the job opportunities were scarce before, now they are almost non-existent. Thank god we have the boat. We'll be renting out the house in the next couple months and getting aboard to hopefully find greener pastures.
I don't mind it so much as I love the water but the rest of the crew would probably prefer the house and yard.
We just got back from the boat a couple minutes ago and checked on the additional solar I added to power the frig and freezer. I'm looking for a wind generator to add as well. never have too much power. especially w/ a five year old who like to watch TV -alot !
I'm sure we will be fine, we home school anyhow and like I said I love the boat. I'm also scouring the local yard sales for a 10x10' screen tent to use when we find a spoil island we like. something light,cheap and durable.
how are things in everyone elses area ?

So as long as we are straying WAY off topic -- please don't bring a TV aboard. Especially if you have a 5 year old. Help him discover the wonder and beauty around him on the water.

I personally believe in using the foulest language in the presence of children. They're going to learn it anyway, might as well learn it from me.

This is also true for the elderly. My mother-in-law Louise is 80 and we have a annual teach Louise to cuss like a sailor day. I ask her children to call her and teach her several 4 letter words and how to use them correctly. I have found that this has enhanced her communications with me greatly.

S/V Haven't named yet.
