Finding Richard at WordPress.com

Which way did he go? Where has he been? Where is he headed? So many questions . . ..

Come Sail Away!

Sailing off over the horizon to distant places has been a dream of mine since I was just a kid FishermansBaySunset. .  . (WAIT! Wasn’t that just yesterday?!?)

Anyway, when I’m pondering the future, I’ll call up my favorite search engine (of the moment) and enter something like “voyaging on a budget.”  Yesterday, I got a hit for a site that I hadn’t seen before:

Capt. John’s The Frugal Voyager’s Cruising and Living Aboard website

Capt. John will be 70 this year, and has spent the past 20 years living aboard and cruising to distant ports.  So, he has a base of experience from which to speak.  He’s also very good at advising you how to have a stress-free life afloat. Things like don’t buy more boat than you need, avoid sailing with “Capt. Boat Payment,” how to avoid sailing into thin financial waters in paradise, how to keep your boat bug-free in the tropics, who to not take advice from around the marina, and why – if you are the one with the dream – you should send your spouse/s.o. – to sailing lessons from a qualified offshore sailing school, etc.   Lots of really great advice.

I’m still cruising the site and enjoying the content therein.
