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!  :o). 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.  :P I expect sailors to call me an old fuddy duddy. That's their problem!
