Bidding Bon Voyage to a Boat
"The upcoming trip couldn't happen to a nicer couple. Tim has planned for and dreamed about it for years, steadily working toward making it a reality, while Varuna patiently awaited the big day that would have her chasing horizons again. I am aware of the risk of being sappy with this marriage metaphor, but it is one that is so appropriate to describe the relationships we may have with our boats, especially when they are taking us across oceans. To survive, we become co-dependent on each other, and as with human couples, the intensity of this neediness is something we can never forget.
