    I live on by boat,it's a 101 years old,and I need help to keep it ship shape,only by being on the water are you going to learn about boats,it takes a lot of wood working to keep her up and going,but by being afloat you will learn Maritine must,you must not get sea sick,and learn to row your self to shore are just a few things ,I have a sail boat also which needs up keep too. But we get to go sailing she is a ketch with more lines than most,but it's the best way to learn to sail,Usally in 2 months your really for your own boat,I am 59 ,male disabled,my mother almost beat me to death when I was a infaint it was not a good start for me,I was a life guard at 15,I lived in Hawaii for5 years,I dive,and have a gold mine,great uncle is a member of the hall of fame in Nasville and I like to sing his number ones at open mics for something to do,the faimly castle is in Swisserland,and I have a great view of San Franisco ,I am in Sausalito the first town a cross the bridge so it's easy to go to the city for things to do,just a room in town cost $1500.00 a month and I have a van to get around with so we get to drive places
