Im not saying what it is to anyone else. Even in the subject it says: "Sailing to me
Its what it means to me.
No, I disagree that cruising is, to me, that its about maintenance, washing clothes, project boating etc.... they are just facilitators to being a tourist - like humping a suitcase into a tour bus.
Maintenance is just part of the System
to be a tourist.
I can clearly say that I (I dont mean you
) try not to waste time on system
things if I can afford to have them expedited.
for example, yesterday I took the laundry and sat their plugging coins into the hungry machines. It was to make it easier and quicker for me... I could have spent more time washing them in a bucket and then be too tired to go out on the town last night (torusiticly drinking).
Same with me in the last month having workmen on the boat doing stuff... I could do it all myself but I would have lost a whole summer of touring France!
Last winter in London I kept saying to a guy down the dock: "Hey, Im going to Buckingham palace, wanna come?" "No, Im in the middle of a boat project". WTF?? You sailed from the other side of the WORLD to NOT see London? You've gotta be kidding.
Same as those people who retire at 65 to do a 10 year project restoration. Thats not tourism to me. So its imperative to have a boat that works, or thrown money at it till it does
Anyway, in a moment I shall shove up some toruisty photos to show people like me what they're gunna see
