 Small Is Beautiful

"So there you are reading Cruising World. Perhaps you, like we, love boats and dream of really going somewhere in one. If I could share only one insight with you it would be this: Don't believe for one minute that the limitation on what you can do lies with the boat you do or do not own. That's not it. The limitations lie within ourselves. The oceans of the world have been crossed over and over again in small craft of all kinds, many clearly unsuitable to the task. Meanwhile we have jobs and schedules and weekends and friends and social obligations and children in school. We want cooked meals and cold drinks and showers and private places to go to the bathroom. In other words, boat or no boat, we are not yet on our way to Tahiti."
