sailing versa almighty $

DSCN9597 Why is a simple art form, to move a boat with only sails & rope so closely related to an industry that seems to have itself consumed by greed ?

The modern definition of boat (Bring On Another Thousand) was created by the illusion sailing relates to yachting relates to wealth & prestige. A romantic idea of freedom only a certain class of people can afford.

Get out your credit card should you need marine supplies, a marina or simply a parking spot for a few hours.

Is it any wonder that sailing is in decline, boats are being neglected and once deteriorated beyond repair even abandoned to sink.

So now even fewer people can enjoy the pleasure of sailing, with the price of a newer boat being out of reach for the average man & the upkeep and maintenance of older boats more expensive than ever.
