Re: Which emergency use fibreglass matting should I have?
Had opportunity to learn how to sail from a elderly librarian. She weighed less than a hundred pounds. A shock of silver hair and half moon readers on a string around her neck. She taught me more than all the professional captains, RYA certified sailors or others.
She taught me.
If itís hard you are doing it wrong.
If you didnít bring it with you you donít have it.
Donít look observe.
I did some nasty sailing with her on old boats as thatís all I could afford. It was amazing how she could think out side the box and jury rig. Think everyone here has the basic skills, supplies and intelligence to get themselves home. You guys are better sailors, well prepared, and intelligent. Especially you Mark. You have seen more weather, have more miles under your keel than I do. You have successfully sailed the sea of life and will continue to do so.
Donít worry, be happy.
BTW make sure your raft certification is up to date.😁
