'Welcome Aboard'

March 08, 1992

In her lengthy article about living on boats in yacht harbors ("Welcome Aboard," Feb. 16), Laura Henning overlooked a few things indigenous to the nautical way of life.

She didn't mention regatta racing, powerboat squadron rallies, sportfishing, water-skiing, whale watching, dolphin watching, scuba diving, spear-fishing, underwater photography, skeet shooting off the fantail, exploring all the islands along our coast, or the music every sailor hears when his shrouds and stays resonate with the fluttering of his sails in strong winds on heavy seas.

In other words, she left out all the adventure and romance that are so much a part of the live-aboard lifestyle. Maybe Laura didn't want to get her feet wet.
