  1. Even after 3 years we are still learning by doing. Hang in there and everything becomes easier the second time around!

  2. Found myself holding my breath while reading this. These are not minor things you are learning so it’s a good thing you’re smart and careful.

  3. Life in the RV has been pretty much the same learning experience. Our first trip we needed the help of neighbors to unhitch our car. Life is learn as you go, it gets easier each time you do it.

  4. I am in love with your boat!! You blog is so much fun to read. I hope you become a master at sailing soon so you can stop worrying and start enjoying it 🙂 hang in there!

  5. Oh how I miss the sailing! Dads 23 footer on the Hudson River…some day, another boat…college for the youngun first. I’m thrilled to share this vicarious adventure, thanks.

  6. Hi guys, well done on the stern to parking, something that is always tricky for us too with a long keel. Yesterday we made a real pigs ear of it and are now considering changing the name of our boat so we will not get recognised in the future!! Recently had power issues and needed new batteries so our windlass was not working. This made us park bows to which we really enjoyed. More privacy and able to jump of the boat in the harbour and swim. Enjoy the reads, keep them coming.

  7. I am hoping this will be me learning this stuff some day (just passed ASA 100 class last year). Thanks for letting us learn with you. Finally, there is an old saying that I will paraphrase, “You learn more from your failures than successes.” It’s so true. Bruce Lee was always more afraid of the man who practiced the same leg kick for 100 days rather than the man who practiced 100 different leg kicks each for one day.
