There are so many... the question is, do I want to come off as a smart @$$ or a little more sagacious....

Hello all. Jumping in. Bought a CC cutter and will be down to San Carlos to splash her in late Sept.

"The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea." Isak Dinesen


If you are contemplating a voyage and you have the means, abandon the venture until your fortunes change. Only then will you know what the sea is all about. "I've always wanted to sail to the South Seas, but I can't afford it." What these men can't afford is _not_ to go. They are enmeshed in the cancerous discipline of "security." And in the worship of security we fling our lives beneath the wheels of routine -- and before we know it our lives are gone. - Sterling Hayden

Where to, Vince? Plan on doing the Pacific puddle jump? I will be dinking around in between SC, La Paz and Mazatlan I expect, to learn the boat and find it/my sea weaknesses before voyaging out. Of course, if I'm feeling good about both, I may head sw as well. Jon

I have already done part of the south pacific crossing from Mazatlan to Nuku Hiva, then some time in Tahiti on the way back, so I feel no need at the moment to do it once more. South America is calling me, besides I already speak the language so that is a plus and it is muy cheap down there. The South Pacific is really cool but spendy as well but some day I may cross again, you never know.

That's where my head is these days, filled with scenarios (Rosie scenarios:D) but mainly it's you never know where I'll end up.  I've thought a good bit about a circumnavigation of the Americas, but haven't found much info from those who've done that route.  I'm also thinking of a Hawaii, Alaska, west coast circle.  My boat was built for high latitude motor sailing.  But, you never know.   It's been a long while since I was out on an open-ended adventure and I look forward to it.  cheers, Jon

Sorry to hijack the thread and will try to get it back to purpose with another favorite quote.

Who is Earl Flynn and does he live in in SC?
Or maybe you mean Errol Flynn? Him, I have heard of. Really knows how to swash his buckles.  LizzyVince Radice wrote: Was the first squander quote Earl Flynn by any chance?
