yes, the photo reveals a handsome cat. i know it is your heart's delight, and with such a handle it's bound to attract a lot of adventure. thx for the tip about the license. having done no more than take a few schooner ferries in the Grenadines, i have done no sailing and need to start small to be sure that the life is really for me.
decking for a genial spirit would be perfect. once i get my sea legs and am convinced i can hold my dinner down in really rough seas, i can consider such sporting fun for a way of life, or at least for occasional passage in island hopping.
generally, i find myself bored with everything and am really looking for something entirely new to fire my engines and toot my whistles. if my personality will mesh with those of salts, then i'm on my way.
if you ever need company, and maybe a little green help, pull my string. i, too, am a 'philosopher' and fantasist.
