David I love this song. Several years ago I had purchased a sailboat. I told my wife when we retired we could sail all over and live on the boat. What a life, we thought.

The issue was/is I am a horrible sailor. I am pretty good at lot of things. Hell, I am pretty good at a lot of things in the water but I am a horrible sailor. The positive is on weekends we would go sleep on the boat, fish, crab and hang out. That was lots of fun but I sucked as a sailor. hahhaa

great song

LTC Jeff Shearer I am not much good at it either. That's why I joined the Army. My father and five uncles were in the Navy and two other uncles were in the Marines. I am a land lubber!

The good out weights the bad LTC Jeff, better to be good at, Fishing, Sleeping, and Crabbing. The best part, the most expensive thing you already have, a boat which is King.
A good sailor would be glad to sail the boat around for you for free, just because you already have the boat.

If you need a good true sailing story let me know.

SGT (Join to see) - LTC Jeff Shearer a few years ago the Principal of my school gave me the task of taking ten teenage students with behavioural difficulties , out sailing. I had never sailed before but he insisted...So..Off we went, he dropped us off at the pier and each student had their own little boats and knew what to do..Race around these floating witches hats. I had the instructor with me in the boat to show me the ropes. I caught on quite fine. I began cheating and cutting corners...The kids loved it. ..So did I. Then the Principal Peter, arrived with the bus and the students dutifully headed to shore. But I was having so much fun, I said to the instructor..Just a few more minutes...Peter got his megaphone out to call the truant teacher into shore as my students all watched me playing hooky..I won their naughty little hearts that day..And I had fun doing it. Lesson, nobody is perfect not even me. Adding the human touch works well in leadership. I reckon a boat a sail boat would be awesome my friend. Even if you don't go sailing far just getting out there in it is fabulous fun

I liked this song the first time I heard it on the radio. Like most of the Crosby, Stills and Nash recordings as their voices sound great together. Neil Young joined them and made their sound even
better. Ted Nugent and David Crosby don''t like each other but that is another story.
