Floating Around

Sometimes I feel like there’s no right place for me in boating. I’m often left out when motor boats are making fun of sailors because they know I sail, and all my sailing friends know that I love motoring around the harbor.

I know a lot about cargo ships, but I don’t work on them. Navy vessels are super cool, but I’m not military.

Watching videos of cigarette boats gets my blood going, but I don’t like the noise when I’m aboard.

Kayaking is fun, and I like paddleboarding, but I’m pretty wobbly.

Did I mention I’m a lousy fisherman? That hasn’t stopped me from buying neat fishing gear. It just looks so cool. If only I knew how to use it.

My absolute favorite thing to do is sit on a boat at the dock and watch the other boats go by… is there a job description for this?
