Chart your course. If you don't know where you are going, any road (or in this case waterway) will take you there. And in boating, just like in business, if you do not set your waypoints carefully, you just may run aground or totally miss your destination (i.e. your business goals).

Janis Couvreux

For the 10 years we were on our sailboat, whether we were sailing under fair-weather conditions, at anchor, docked on shore, or in a dinghy going from our boat to shore, they did not wear life jackets. Was this irresponsible, was it reckless, was it total ignorance on our part, us, the parents? No. Our boat was our home -- the only home we had.

"Mama, don't let your sons grow up to be cowboys" the song goes, or in our case, sailors and rock climbers--but then again, why not? We had to hope that we gave our children the tools and know-how to craft their lives successfully, hoping that the jumble in their adolescent and young adult brains would all sort itself out.

In reality, even with 19 and a half hours, getting anything done on the boat other than eating, drinking, peeing, sleeping, is not easy. Maybe it's the rocking.
