What Really Matters
The following list, copied from the excellent website Morgan’s Cloud, struck me as “almost” perfect so I saved it:
- Keep the water out
- Keep the crew on the boat
- Keep the keel side down
- Keep the mast up
- Keep the rudder on
- The rest is small stuff.
All I would add to this list is that if you’re cruising with your “significant other,” make sure that he/she is happy!
On that note, I hope that Rebecca and her family are making out OK back in Canada. Later today I’ll be attending the wedding* of Josh and Jenn on s/v Sheliak. We all wish that my lovely wife was here to share it as well.
*This may not be a legal wedding, but the two plan to have a ceremony on the nearby “secret sandbar.” Party and Bonfire to follow this evening. Legal ceremony with family to occur upon their return to civilization.
PS: If there are any grammatical, punctuation or spelling mistakes in what I post while Rebecca is away, that is because I sorely miss her proofreading skills!
