With less than 30 days until departure, I am finally getting nervous. Daily thoughts pop into my head like,
"What if you hit something and the mast falls down cracking the deck?"
"What if I have a bad dream that a giant shark slid into the cockpit and snaps my arm off while I sleep on deck?"
"What if, what if, what if?"
"What ever made me think I could do this, as I reset the anchor for the 6th time during an afternoon thunderstorm?"
"Do I really think I can do this?"
"Why can't I be content to sail around the river?""
"Why wouldn't any of my girlfriends accompany me?"
Golly, just thinking of these questions is making me crazy. Time to make out an inventory list, order some charts, a backup auto helm, a weather widget for my Garmin gps and focus on a safe voyage.
Any ladies have the time and desire to join me on my northbound round trip cruise from Melbourne, Florida to Sandy Hook, New Jersey with a day sail around the Statue of Liberty. My boat is comfy but primitive with a two burner galley, port a pot, cushioned interior, and two lovely trampolines for lounging. The route is mostly ICW with some coastal cruising. Let me know, I plan to ship out between May 29 and June 1.
