You can keep that cruise ship travel.
I must have drowned in a previous life.
Same here. A brother of mine took me for a ride on his sailboat (37' Westphal Dualer) once. Well, we got to the mouth of the harbor and the seas were a bit on the choppy side. THEN we experienced what sailors call an accidental jive (NO FUN AT ALL!
). The sheets were loose and the main mast was busy trying to knock us into the water.
After a few minutes of mayhem, my brother managed to start the auxiliary engine and bring us back into the harbor away from the chop and back to a level footing.
After that, I told my brother I would only ride on a sailboat again when they started making them with gimbaled cabins.
Of course nobody makes sailboats with gimbaled cabins.
I had watched the gimbaled sink remain upright while all the gyrations were going on and I thought that was kind of neat.
At any rate, give me a catamaran or a tri-maran any day over a single keel sailboat. I DO NOT like to have to lean sideways all the time.
I expect sailors to call me an old fuddy duddy. That's their problem!
