Just received this 1-star review on my book Bumfuzzle.Thought it was pretty hilarioushow she totally nailed the “real” cruiser that I talked about throughout the book.
This book is dangerously misleading to new sailors. Glorifies ineptitude. Sheer luck they weren’t seriously injured or killed while on their journey.
Man I wish I could make more people understand that it isn’t luck at allsailing just really isn’t that difficult to begin with. Your oddsno matter how stupid you areof being seriously injured or killed are no worse than they are driving to work. Now, which would you rather be doing?
Today we narrowly avoided death while playing on the docks and running around on the beach. Ouest did get a thistle on her toe at one point, but we were able to staunch the bleeding before she passed out. And Lowe did walk straight into a garbage can and leave a welt on his forehead. He’s now under observation in the ICU. Life manit’s almost too dangerous to live it.
