RE: [AtkinBoats] UnlikelyBoatBuilder: Plan B
I wonder sometimes why we bother with Plan A ?
Plan A always seems to be wrong - why don’t we just start with Plan B or even Plan C and save all that time………
Happy New Year to all.
As Captain Cook knew, there's always a Plan B. Thus, when the wooden boat that Helena and I had been looking for for years, turned up on eBay, we suddenly needed a Plan B.
Plan A had been to "build Cabin Boy this winter so when and if we buy a wooden boat, I'll know how to take care of it." But the right boat came along sooner than we expected, and we now owned a boat. A boat in Florida -- about 2000 nm. from home. Clearly, Plan A wasn't going to cut it.
So we came up with Plan B: to sail the new boat home from Florida in stages. Stage 1, the north west coast of Florida to the south east coast of Florida, via the Keys, commencing in 20 days.
And that means this unhandy man needs to finish Cabin Boy in 20 days...
