Another one of my hobbies/life style elements is sailing, I've been doing it since before I could walk. Throughout the decades I've been involved in it in various forms....from being landlocked at times, to 6000 miles in 4 years between 2004 and 2008, most of it off shore and half of it solo.
When my first born gets off the payroll, and the second one evacuates to college we will have more time to ourselves and there WILL be more cruising.
Just like there's a bunch of brewing forums there are, of course, a pot load of sailing/cruising forums. Contrary to popular belief sailing is not necessarily a rich man's sport, in fact most serious cruisers do so on a very limited budget. Kinda like you don't need a Top Tier system to brew, a pot and a turkey frier and a plastic bucket go a long way.....it's all in the skill. Anywho, I was telling my friends on the sailing forum about my newfound brewing obsess....eh hobby and of course the topic turned to brewing on board..... Someone posted this link. It's to another cruising forum, and it makes and interesting read for the brewer, so I thought I'd share....http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/f91/my-home-brew-beer-is-ready-25005.html
