REFITS AND BREAKAGE....AND CRUISING!!!!!

not mine, as i do my own work ....someone else does your refitting--you go to sea. it breaks..WHAT YE GONNA DO-- call someone while out there or do it yourself--or will ye make  the trip  return to where it was done and gripe about it not working??   seems to me many do the  latter bit--go back into the original port many miles backsliding from their destination to have original  do-er   redo the work. is ridiculous....why not do it yourself so it is done to your own  standards..

i do much of my own work--that which my  hand are  unable to  do , i ay someone to fix--and i will help as much as possible, so if it breaks i can redo it while underway and not have to be tied to anywhere for   warrantee work.  

i have seen all kids of excuses made  by souls who SAY they want to cruise--but these same souls are still,  more than 2 yrs later, in port. mebbe they delivered their own boats from somewhere to their home port, but they arees tillin port.  doing refits that are just as easily done while underway.

smooth sailing and  remember--cruising is another way to  say that you are doing  repairs in exotic locales. anyone thinking otherwise will find out the  meaning  the hard way, despite all the work done in port --is gonna be something to do in the exotic locales.  i saved  my repairs to be done whileunder way so i coul dget out of my former home port..i am glad i did it that way--i am out  here having  fun and enjoying  perfect weather....and dodging named storms..LOL--is called CRUISING!!!
