The Vessel


Back in early 2004 my lovely bride and I were surfing the web looking for our ideal cruising vessel. I had many thoughts on the subject but this train of thought was soon derailed by an edict from the mouth of the priestess on high.

"It shall be big". And it was. And the morning and the evening were the first day.

And again from on high come the voice. "It shall be steel" and lo with much trembling did I fear the wrath of she who must be obeyed. "Why does the ark must needs be constructed of such a dreadfully un-nautical material" cried I.

And lowering her head and raising one eyebrow in such a manner as to eliminate all doubt as to her conviction she quietly stated her point. "In case YOU hit something!"

There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth but the search engine peered far and wide and found .... her. A Kanter Atlantic 45 in St. Thomas USVI.

8 years in replying. Voyage complete. Circumnavigation survived. Don't know if you're still around but had forsaken the blog for a targeted cruiseletter over the years. Am collecting all the stories for inclusion in a book to be finished this year.
