Ahhh spontaneity... well... that, Spring Break and the fact that my friend Ralph had been waylaid by minor mechanical issues and was still in the US.
Ok, so this blog post is a coming-out of sorts - I'm one of those "crazy" people who has, until now, secretly aspired to live aboard a sailboat. Growing up in Southern Virginia, summer activities often centered around the water. My dad, a jack-of-all-trades, built the first boat the family owned out of plywood and fiberglass. It was a small powerboat, but I remember it seeming huge to me - I was 5 or 6 at the time. Later, my family owned other powerboats and enjoyed spending time picnicking and water skiing on various lakes in the area.
