Re: Downside of living aboard

Yep. I don't know about living aboard but stepping onto a boat always seems like returning to reality to me.

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

Re: How poor is the average liveaboard cruiser?

If efforts are collective, shouldn't the fruits be? What would be the sense of everyone pulling together and then being left out of the benefits? Doesn't seem controversial to me.

You are a good sport. My post was rather dikkish. Sorry.

Seems like the words "collective efforts" means something different to you than it does to me.

Re: Good Small Boat for Older, Fatter Woman to learn on

I like Caleb's idea of just keeping a Sunfish on a beach. Every time I sail my Sunfish I always remark what a great boat it is. Not comfortable but it sails like a champ.
