Cruising Sailors Forum Archive

I believe the problem is a wide ranging misunderstanding of what sailing is, and he's a part of it.

"I've decided to live the dream, buy a boat and move onboard. Which sailboat should I buy?"

That's the too typical post on some sailing/cruising forums and facebook boating groups. They go right into the accommodations, "room enough for me (I'm divorced,...), and my girlfriend(I haven't met yet,...)" and skip over anything about sailing the damn thing. "After I install my big screen TV and micro wave, I'm going to sail around the world"....

Cheap boats and sailing forums/groups are driving this crazy bus! There's no stopping it either with people looking for affordable housing and a dirth of cheap boats.
