Re: Quitting Your Job, Sailing Away... Is it always rosey?

I agree on the cold water.
Dungeness Crab, found in fair abundance here in the Vancouver Island area are some sweet and of all the Crab I have eaten, still my favorite!! Not as big as some of the other varieties but yummy!! A few of those and a big bucket of prawns!!! Heaven! Toss in a couple white tail deer steaks and you got a surf and turf to remember!

About the only seafood I could see paying for any more would be in season dungeness crab or some big fat Alaskan King crab. Miss some of that PNW seafood...Maybe UPHILL could catch a feed for me next year?

Well cold water fish are great, its true. Its the cold part that is getting old.

I think I will be able to get down with a BBQ of fresh Lionfish and a leg of goat! There is much to be said for toughing it out in the Caribbean!!

I am still going to buy crab, an out of state license would make for pricey crabs, oysters, clams etc. It is cool a fish boat gave me chunk of smoked salmon, saving for Labor day BBQ. Yes aeventyr I might be able to next year

It sucks big black donkey dongs. No crabs, no shrimp, no snapper, no grouper. Cloudy water. Expensive whores. military government. Bombings in the south. A few SN guys come here every season from BC, geez we got to drink them under the table...

Yeah, you'd probably do ok here...

You only sound like your half joking around.

Price of whores don't much matter to me, Be the last thing I ever did once the first mate found out. I don't think shes afraid of doing time.

The rest of it though, is the place as bad as it would seem? Ecologically, politically, socially?

It's a lot easier to bring happiness with you, than to try to find it when you reach your destination.
