When it comes to clothing, what matters most is that it prepares you for emergencies, not catwalks
In case you haven't noticed from the boat shows and magazine ads, the proper yachtie must be properly attired. I suppose this trend started in the days when Sir Thomas Lipton wore finely tailored apparel as he bashed about on his Shamrock with British royalty.
Maybe it began much earlier. I seem to remember movies of Cleopatra reclining high up on her "barge," dressed in attire that accentuated certain attributes, even though it wouldn't have been suitable for bending over and picking up an oar. (Or maybe it would.)
When a megayacht is far beyond your means, a good horn will do a lot for ego gratification
I've had this problem all my life. I always want it a little bigger. Most people with boats seem to share this idiosyncrasy, but they just want bigger boats. I've always wanted bigger boats, too, but it goes much deeper with me. I also want bigger stuff on whatever boat I have.
After years of living aboard, our land 'resort' is at once a refuge and a strangely unfamiliar place
Boaters who shrug at their lack of seamanship shouldn't be on the water
Through the years I've seen many would-be voyagers spend years of hard labor and countless dollars preparing boats to fulfill their dreams. Far too often, reality overcomes the dream.
